UPDATE: YELLOW ONIONS

March 4, 2022

Abnormally high temperatures received in the Northwest during last summer’s growing season reduced the onion crop size profile, leaving fewer of the size required to peel onions efficiently.

  • The heat also reduced the quality of the overall crop, reducing the amount of time the onions would maintain their quality in storage
  • Northwest storage supplies are on pace to be depleted sooner than normal (early to mid-April vs late April to early May)
  • Markets are expected to remain elevated into May when production begins in the California desert growing region
