Vidalia Onions about to start season
The Vidalia onion season is about to begin! As such the question of when can you get them becomes a pressing question.
Well the answer you’ll read in the paper or hear from those who are selling sweet onions from other states is April 27th. This date comes from a marketing order. This order sets a date for Vidalias to start shipping. BUT (yes there’s a but) you are able to get Vidalias before this ship date if the onions are inspected by the USDA. They would also need to be certified to have met the established grade requirements and are under positive lot identification. This would be approved by the Federal-State Inspection service. This little detail is not on the front pages but can be an important detail when trying to be first to bring these tasty onions to the hungry market.
