(1) Bacterial soft rot. Onions may be affected by bacterial soft rot. The entire onion or individual fleshy scales are water soaked and pale yellow to light brown. Affected scales are soft and filled with putrid-smelling liquid. This liquid may ooze out at the neck when the upper part of the affected part is squeezed.

(2) Black mold rot. Black mold rot in onions is caused by Aspergillus niger. Black powdery spore masses adhere to the outer scale or are lodged between the two outer scales. The lesions will be sunken, discolored, and shriveled.
