Available all year. Pearl onions (immature dry onions) peak in fall and winter and sweet onions peak in late summer and fall. Look for firm, well-shaped onions with dry skins. Avoid sooty or sprouting onions. Green onions should be crisp and tender with fresh tops and medium-size necks. Store onions in a cool, dark, dry place up to a month, preferably hung where air can circulate around them. Onions can give off an odor in the refrigerator and affect the flavor of other foods. Refrigerate green onions in a plastic bag up to 1 week.
