Onions (Allium cepa L.) are one of the most well-known and commonly eaten bulbs. It is grown in India throughout three crop seasons (Kharif, late-Kharif, and Rabi). Onion storage is critical to ensuring that onions remain available in the market throughout the year. The major loss after harvest is caused by the forms identified with bulb dormancy physiology, such as growth and establishment, which usually occur during long-term storage or post-staining and add weight loss, degradation of visual appearance, quality changes, and, in severe cases, absolute production losses. Onion storage is a multifaceted subject involving several strategies varying from location to location. This review investigates the changes in the size details and materials of the various onion storage structures and the influence of long-term storage on onion quality parameters such as physiological loss in weight, sprouting, and rotting.
