I have planted these for two years. Excellent onion. Easy to grow, produces large tasty onions. I put them in the freezer and store some in the panty. They usually last until March or April in the pantry.

how well do Candy Hybrid onions store and how should you store them ?
David h on Mar 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have grown candy hybrid for two seasons and find that they keep for me till may. First season I stored in the basement in flat boxes, single layer but there was too much humidity and I lost most due to rot. The second season I stored in the cooler area of my pantry in cardboard flat boxes in a single layer. I am losing some due to sprouting, but not rot. Make sure to check periodically to remove bad ones. When I start losing some I dice, tray freeze and then vacuum seal. Also at the first round of harvesting I dice, tray freeze and then vacuum pack. I have used one seasons for two winters. I like this onion for is ease in growing, storing and taste (fresh or frozen).
