Today, I had my first taste of a Vidalia onion. My friend, #$&^&^%#$, recieved a box of about fifteen by mail the other day. They cost him $34. He gave two to me.

Well, today, I chopped up one, to put in a tuna sandwich mix. Before putting the bits in, I ate several morsels. Eh. Tasted a bit flat to me. Characterless, compared to the 1015. It was just one taste of one onion. Perhaps as we devour the rest of this one, and then the second, I may have second thoughts.

What about you? Which onions do you prefer, when eating them raw?

I would participate in your thread, edgar, but you said you were no longer my friend, so I guess I will just go elsewhere and find someone who likes me.

I never heard of a 1015.....


I like spanish onions (brown), red ones, cipollini, and, the one time I tried them, maui onions. Not sure I ever tasted a vidalia onion.

they're the bees knees osso...I just googled them and learned something. They are so named because they are supposed to be planted on October 15 in south texas. Gives it the proper daylight, rain and what not.

I enjoy a good spanish onion too.

Vidalia never did it for me either.

I have to say I have limited knowledge of onions, I always thought the red onion was the one I liked the most but after trying it in a tomato sauce it didnt add any punch so Im going to try normal (white) onions and see how that goes.

I think read onions are more for eating raw material girl, like on a sandwich or in a salad.

If I'm cooking with onions in a sauce, I'll saute them first to release their flavor and make sure they cook all the way in the liquid.

I'm not familiar with 1015s, but will look for them. I too prefer Maui over Vadalias.

Up until recently, I only used the plain old yellow onion. Since living in Florida, I have had access to Vidalia, as they come from Grorgia. Never even heard of the 1015 though. Have to take a look-see!

I like an oniony taste, and in cooking , the regular yellow onions seem to get anice caramalized texture and taste. I was never a fan of the "super sweet" onions like Vidalias, Wala Wala, Pennsy sweets ,(never heard of the 1015) but it probably a similar varietal.
Gimme a "long keeper" and Im a happy dude.

I put the yellow onions in soups or stews, just prefer the 1015 on my sandwiches and salads.

I first had vidallias in georgia when I lived there. I never saw why they were so special. I like onions, but I am not picky about what variety (usually by the organic ones)

Obvious fact: Not all Vidalia onions are created equal.

Nevertheless every spring I have a Vidalia Onion Festival with a Vidalia onion and a liverwurst sandwich on seeded rye bread.

Ritual is important.

Tonight we had grilled Vidalias with our lamb-mozza burgers.

Damn fine meal. I didn't even bother preparing the asparagus I'd picked up at the farmer's market. Grilled onions with lamb burgers. Fine.
