Question: 

What is the storage life of onions?

Answer: 

The storage life of onions is determined by the variety and storage conditions.  When properly stored, good keepers, such as ‘Copra’ and ‘Stuttgarter,’ can be successfully stored for several months.  Poor keepers, such as ‘Walla Walla’ and ‘Sweet Spanish,’ can only be stored for a few weeks.  If the storage temperatures are too warm, the onions may sprout.  Rotting may be a problem in damp locations.  Inspect the stored onions on a regular basis in fall and winter.  Discard any that are starting to rot.
