Sweet and Juicy Onions

All onions are not created equal -- some are sweeter than others.

  • Sweet onions are available from April through August. They generally have thin, light outer skins, a high water content, and a high sugar content. Because they bruise easily and are fragile, they have a fairly short storage life.

Types of Sweet Onions:

  • Vidalia
  • Walla Walla
  • Maui
  • Texas Spring Sweet
  • Imperial Sweet
  • Carzalia Sweet varieties

During the winter months, some additional sweet varieties, such as Oso Sweet and Rio Sweet, often are imported from South America.
