This might be a puzzle to non-West Coast of North Americans.

A Christmas tradition here is boxes of Japanese oranges which used to 
come in little wooden boxes, and now are in cardboard ones.  The 
Chinese broke into this market a few years ago.

This year the Chinese cardboard boxes are just coverings for a sturdy 
green plastic crate 18 cm x 25 cm by 12 cm deep  ( 7 x 10 x 5 inches 
). They will stack, and I think would be perfect for storing bulbs.
