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 Yellow Onions fall into the dry onion category. These onions have a mildly pungent flavor and are certified organic in accordance with the 1990 California Organic Foods Act. Organic Yellow Onions are preferred for reasons of taste, health and the environment. These onions are a favorite in quiche, pizza, and onion soup and are great au gratin, fried, stir-fried, creamed, or stuffed.

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 Yellow Onions are hand selected for excellent quality.

Look for onions that are firm, heavy for size and have dry, papery skins. When selecting yellow onions avoid any signs of moisture, green shoots or dark spots. Keep in mind that humidity breeds spoilage in dry onions.

Store whole 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.
