onions are known to folks around the world as the sweetest
onions available. Grown in a 20-county area in the southeastern
portion of the state, these “no-tears” Georgia beauties are
sought for their mind, sweet taste, due to their high sugar and
water content, and the loamy, low-sulfur soil where they’re
grown. In 1990, the Georgia General Assembly declared the
Vidalia the state’s official vegetable. Fresh season for
Vidalias runs roughly May through October, but these onions are
available into late fall, thanks to controlled-atmosphere cold
storage and frozen packaging.
