    Vidalia Onions

    Regulated season opened yesterday. Trip to Savannah, veered off the interstate to get some
    When I started woodworking, I didn't know squat. I have progressed in 30 years - now I do know squat.

    What is a "regulated season"?

    I love onions. On hamburgers a few of my favorite places would put grilled and raw onions on my burger.

    Vidalia isn’t your normal onion. A “sweet “ onion. The name has huge market value so the state protects the brand.to maintain quality. Limited to 7 counties. The ag department inspects and monitors crop. A few weeks ago they announced this year’s ship date as 4/24. Meaning can’t ship/sell before Lotta trademark stuff, growing regulations etc

    Keep counterfeit crop out of the hands of miscreants from Mississippi, Texas, etc.

    Short-term season. Best eaten very fresh. Don’t keep well

    absolutely marvelous. You can Google and get some shipped to you

    Also - 2 slices of bread, mayo, and a 1/2” slab of onion is a perfect. Sandwich

    True fresh Vidalia onions can be eaten just like an apple.

    I like a big slab on Peter Pan peanut butter with some French's Yellow Mustard.

    'maters (real Summer vine ripened) &
    Vidalias on two slices of bread = heaven.

    Thanks, I think the same happens here with Walla Walla onions. You can by seeds and starts but you can't sell them as Walla Walla onions.

    Yep. Love the Walla Wallas. Use to visit an aunt in Spokane in my younger years. Walla Wallas were a staple during our visits.

    I just bought some Walla Walla onion sets in the bare root room at Jung's Seed in Madison, Wisconsin.

    Also remember three guys on I've Got A Secret TV show years ago. They were from Walla Walla and their names were: Dick Dick, Tom Tom and Gary Gary or something like that.

    Vidalias are wonderful and amazing. While there are other "sweet" onions that are available to me year round, if I see an actual vidalia, it gets bought.
