How to pick and store peppers and onions.
When are onions ready to pick? Ours are usually in season from early July to mid-August. You’ll want to look for onions that the tops have turned yellowish and have begun to fall over. For peppers, it varies by type, but firm and colorful is always good. Store your unpeeled onions in a cool, dry, well ventilated area. Store your peppers in your fridge’s crisper, but make sure you keep them dry.
