Idaho & Eastern Oregon
Planting: March 14 – April 10
Planting occurs between mid-March and mid-April. The date varies year to year depending on soil and weather conditions, water availability, and onion variety. Planting usually takes about three to four weeks.

Growing: March 24 – September 14
Onions emerge 10 to 14 days after planting and grow for 120 to 140 days depending on variety and growing conditions. Throughout this time, nutrients and water are carefully administered through drip and furrow irrigation. By the end of the growing season a typical onion field will have had 30 inches per acre of water applied to it.

Harvest: August 20 – October 10
Harvesting begins in mid to late August and continues through mid-October. In the Idaho/Eastern Oregon growing area warm dry fall days allow for the ideal curing environment for storage onions. Following harvest, our onions are placed in forced air storages that allow them to be shipped through the end of April.

Shipping: September - April
