Sweet (Vidalia) Onions – Named After Vidalia, Georgia
Vidalia Onions are named as such because of where they are grown, which is in the area of Vidalia, Georgia. The onions are Yellow Granex Hybrids, and they get the name Vidalia when they are grown in similar soil conditions to the fields in Vidalia, because the soil allows the onions to grow sweet and mild.
The key to sweet onions is having enough sand in the root zone soil to allow the sulfur to leech out and wash down into the subsoil below the root zone. Sulfur is what makes onions hot and spicy, so having less sulfur for the onion to take up in the growth process allows the onion to be sweet.

We are not responsible for plants which are not picked up right away when they arrive.
Transplants are ready to go in the ground when they arrive and should be planted as quickly as possible because their root systems are developed and will need to be planted in the proper conditions to survive and thrive.
Due to the unpredictable nature of Mother Nature, we are unable to guarantee the date the onions will arrive from the grower, but we will do our best to let you know as far ahead of time as possible by contacting you directly. We do expect the deliveries in November and we will announce on social media, the website, and our newsletter (please, sign up for it!) when they arrive – so be ready to pick up and plant!
