What’s getting my onions?

June 28, 2019

Onions (Candy) are looking great - some huge bulbs already. A few days ago, I noticed a few plants had yellow or dead innermost leaves - basically, the growth point turned to mush. What is it?

Should I harvest prematurely to keep whatever it is from moving down inside the bulb? The stems have not “fallen over” yet to indicate maturity.

This is the worst of the ones it happened to (about 10% of the crop).
