Valley Flora Farm (Langlois) and Norm Lehne Garden & Orchards (Roseburg) both grow wonderfully sweet Walla Walla onions, available fresh (with the green tops still attached) in the start of the season (usually June at Lehne’s and July at Valley Flora’s), and “cured” (dried, with no tops) later on (by August or September). Each onion weighs between a pound to 1-1/2 pounds.
Because Walla Wallas are a sweet onion, they don’t keep near as long as a “storage”, or standard, onion. I refrigerate mine (especially when they’re fresh) and try to use them within a month or so. Cured Walla Wallas will store in the cupboard for a few months, but even then, I tend to refrigerate mine so they don’t start to sprout.
