Sweet onions are popular among cooks because of their mild, sweet taste.

They derive their signature flavor from the fact that they contain more water and less sulphur than regular onions.

Some of the best-known sweet onions are Vidalias, which are grown in a specific 20-county region in Georgia. Technically, Vidalias are all the same cultivar, known as Granex, and you can grow them at home.

Plant your sweet onions from September through December in a sunny spot in your garden. With proper watering and care, they’ll be ready to harvest around April.

Know that the flavor can vary based on the soil type and other growing conditions.
