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 Pearl Onions fall into the dry onion category. These tiny onions are smaller than boiler onions and contain a sweet, mild flavor and are certified organic in accordance with the 1990 California Organic Foods Act. Each and every Melissa's label reads: "Melissa's Certified Organic Produce is free of artificial or synthetic fertilizers and full of unforgettable, great tasting flavor. Our farmers use traditional earth-friendly farming methods inspected by a nationally recognized agency to verify organic authenticity. Melissa's Organic Produce, a choice made closer to nature."

Organic Pearl Onions are preferred for reasons of taste, health and the environment. Although often used in a variety of dishes, Melissa’s Organic Pearl Onions are a favorite once creamed or pickled.

Melissa’s Organic Pearl Onions are hand selected for excellent quality. Look for Organic Pearl Onions that are firm, heavy for size and have dry, papery skins.

When selecting Pearl Onions avoid any signs of moisture, green shoots or dark spots. Keep in mind that humidity breeds spoilage in dry onions.

Store whole Pearl 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. Organic produce should not be stacked with non-organic produce. Display: Display with Melissa's Organic Dried Tomatoes, Boiler Onions.
