May - July

How to select

Harvest season is April to June, though with cold storage these are available through Fall. Because of the higher sugar level of these onions, they bruise easily.

How to prepare

Vidalias are known for their sweet flavor and are often eaten raw as well as cooked, making them an excellent choice for salads.
