Onions are affected by the amount of light they receive. Day-neutral onions begin forming bulbs when daylight lasts 12-14 hours. They usually are sweeter and less pungent than long-day varieties. Day-neutral onions usually store better than short-day onions. Day-neutral onions can grow in many areas of the United States, except the far North and deep South.
