Most varieties of specialty onions available from Melissa’s can be divided into two main classifications. Green Onions or scallions (onions harvested when green) and Dry Onions (mature onions) harvested when their flesh is juicy and covered with a dry skin.

Melissa’s Organic Boiler Onions are dry onions organically grown in accordance with the 1990 California Organic Foods Act, and they are available in white, red, and gold.

Melissa’s Organic Boiler Onions are about one inch in diameter and impart a sweet, pungent flavor. These Boiler Onions are the choice for better taste and health and less impact on the environment. They can be cooked in various side dishes and are favored for use in pickling and stews.

Melissa’s Organic Boiler Onions should be firm, heavy for size, with dry, papery skins. When selecting dry onions, avoid any signs of moisture, green shoots or dark spots. Keep in mind humidity breeds spoilage in dry onions.

Store whole dry onions in a cool, dry place with good air circulation for up to two months (depending on condition when purchased). Once cut, tightly wrap any unused onion in plastic, refrigerate and use within four days.
