Description

Yellow onions are medium in size. The bulb is encased in a light yellow to copper, dry, papery skin. The flaky, layered skin surrounds a white luminous flesh. The ringed flesh is firm, crisp, and juicy. Yellow onions are crunchy with a pungent flavor when raw, and when cooked, they develop a nutty, mild flavor with sweet undertones.

Description

Green onions are small to medium in size, and grow in bundles of elongated, straight leaves and narrow skinny bases. The dark green leaves are flat, stiff, and hollow with small, central tubes. Green onions are crisp and juicy with a grassy, sweet, and slightly pungent flavor that is milder than mature onions.
