The "growing guide" said when the tops flop over they're ready...which they just started doing in the last couple of days. I don't know if they store well...I'm hoping they do. I honestly don't know how long they'll last...they're that good! I've not been able to get any onions to make "bulbs" before these, don't know why, but they worked!!
