- by Melissa De Leon Chavez
REIDSVILLE, GA - Vidalia® onion season kicked off with a bang last month—with some of the sweetest onions around entering a hot marketplace.
I spoke with Brandon Parker, Director of Sales for Shuman Farms, on the show floor of Viva Fresh 2019, to learn more about the Vidalia season.
“We’re very excited to talk about the start of the Vidalia onion season that started on Monday April 22nd,” Brandon said. “The crop looks very nice…Despite some acreage reduction and lower yields, the quality is there. We’re very excited about that and think the consumer is going to be excited about that as well.”
Shuman Farms is primed for grilling season with its RealSweet® brand Vidalia offerings.
“Demand, as normal, certainly picks up when springtime rolls around. It’s a great time of year for people to get out and start grilling,” Brandon explained. “The Vidalia onion is, of course, great for those events.”
