Super Sweet Sunions Season Is Finally Here November 9, 2021

It’s our sweetest time of the year — and no, we’re not talking about holiday cookies and candy!

We’ve been patiently growing a delicious crop of Sunions, our tearless sweet variety, and they’re finally available for their limited run in stores. Starting November 17th, you can get your hands on this revolutionary variety that is prized by professionals and home cooks alike.

What makes Sunions so special? In a nutshell, they offer all the benefits of onions without any of the drawbacks that prevent people from enjoying onions:

Tear-free cooking.

Forget running your knife under cold water or ruining your onion’s texture by microwaving it. There’s no need for weird kitchen hacks when you use Sunions — they are naturally tear-free, which means that classic winter dishes like French onion soup are a pleasure to make rather than a pain (literally).

Certified sweet.

Sunions undergo a strict, three-step, third-party certification process that ensures they are both sweet and tearless. That means our Sunions get to the market a little bit later than the average onion, but once they do, you can count on their consistency time and time again.

Use them in anything.

Sunions can go straight from the cutting board to the table — no soaking or other steps needed. Try them on salads and sandwiches, saute them, bake them … with their crisp texture and unique flavor, they’re a match for just about anything a cook can dream up in the kitchen.

Grown in the U.S.A.

We grow our Sunions in the fertile volcanic soil of the Snake River Plain, then ship them directly from our facility in Idaho to locations around the country. No GMOs, no foreign sources — just pure, sweet, U.S.A.-grown onions.

We’ll continue to ship Sunions until April or supplies run out, whichever comes first. Place your order by calling 208.722.5141 and get your hands on these unique onions while you can!
