Duster is performing well this year with excellent yield potential clearly noticeable from early in the season. Here you can see the importance of curing onions to achieve better quality. Before harvest, Duster have good bulb qualities, but the curing process allows for the bulb to mature and form a hard tunic, protecting the bulb from dehydration and slowing down infection from various diseases. These onions will have to be cured for another three months to achieve the ultimate quality for the specific variety.
