Vidalia onions are the sweetest, best tasting onions in the world and are only grown in Vidalia GA. There's something about the soil there that keeps the onions unique. They are only available for a short time in the late spring and early summer.

When I lived in SC and my daughter lived in Atlanta, we would make a special weekend trip to buy onions in Vidalia (now you can get them at most supermarkets during season).

Here'a a good way to enjoy them.
