  • Drying is complete when the onion neck is tight, outer scales are dry and make a rustling noise when touched, and the skin color is uniform.

  • Another good option for storing onions is to tie them up in bunches and store them by hanging them upside down in a cool, dry place.
  • It is suggested here that along with cold chain facilities it is required to maintain the quality due to high ambient temperature prevalent in our country.
