UPDATE: Onions

September 28, 2017

Markon First Crop Onions are available in Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.

  • The new crop is dominated by medium and jumbo sizes; colossal and super colossal onions are limited
  • Smaller sizes may persist throughout the Northwest season
    • In late January, the Northwest experienced record snowfall, leaving growing areas saturated into April; this delayed planting that typically begins in March
    • At the start of the season, growers were forced to harvest and pack sooner than normal, preventing supplies from reaching full size potential
  • Limited quantities of storage onions will be available over the next few weeks; growers will ship exclusively out of storage by early November
