Storing, freezing tips
Vidalia onions are susceptible to bruising because of their high water and sugar content. They must be handled with care by the grower, retailer and consumer.
Preserve Vidalias by keeping them cool, dry and separated.
Vidalia Onion Committee recommends the following storage methods:
- Wrap separately in paper towels or newspaper and store in the refrigerator.
