Peru Sweet Onions
When Herndon Farms has shipped their last Vidalia Sweet Onion of the season, they look to the Vidalia Cousin down in the sands of Peru. Planted from the Vidalia seed, the Peru Onion is closest to the Vidalia in sweetness and taste. This Granex style Onion carries the same characteristics of the bright yellow skin and flat body.
Mexican Sweet Onions
We begin each year with the Mexican Sweet Onion. Offered from January until March, this short day onion with its deeper shaped body is known to be the first sweet onion of the year. The Mexican Sweet Onion makes a great transition for retailers from the Peru Sweet into the Vidalia Sweet.
