The exact date an onion is harvested and ripe is not known, but the first fruits are harvested shortly after the tree has grown long enough to harvest its first trunks (this typically occurs during the first few days of early summer).
How much does an onion, in whole and in pieces, cost?
The cost of this item depends on the vendor’s type of onion and the type of fruit. The cost is usually in cents, and ranges from about $3.00–20.00 USD. The price of a large onion is about $6 dollars (1/2 lb.) if you can handle it; the small sizes can vary from just over a dollar to more than $15.00 USD each. A large onion has as much as 12 ounces (455 g) of flesh packed into just the skin and stems. A large onion is a typical weight of 5 cups of fresh root weight (5 lbs., 1.5 kg) and costs about $5.00 (4 lbs., 1.8 kg). If you buy a large root weight, the vendor usually charges a smaller price for a small size (about 2lbs., .5 kg).
