The onion is a bulb that, due to its flavor, is used as food and condiment. The cultivated onion probably originated in southwestern Asia. It requires a sunny place and a temperate or warm climate, although the ideal conditions are cool temperatures in the initial phase of development and warm towards maturity. Temperatures between 12°C and 24°C are optimal for its development, it supports minimum temperatures of 1°C and maximum temperatures of 35°C. Loose soils with a good organic matter content are required. It is sensitive to excess humidity, so it will be necessary to take care of its irrigation.
