Strawberry Onions are here!

Plant City Florida is well known as the Winter Strawberry Capital of the World.  What most people don’t know is that most local farmers also grow “Strawberry Onions”.  You may ask, What is a Strawberry Onion?  Do they taste like strawberries?   A Strawberry Onion is a Savannah Hybrid Sweet Onion which is grown on the perimeter of  the strawberry fields.  Sadly, they do not taste like strawberries, but they are sweet.

 

Strawberry Onions are available from February to April.  It’s funny to hear customers describing our Strawberry Onions to their friends or to other customers.  I’ve often heard them say “These strawberry onions are as sweet as an apple”.  Last year we decided to start shipping our strawberry onions to the Northeast US via UPS.  So far, they’ve made it all the way to Maine, Ohio and Michigan.  The Strawberry Onions were such a hit last year, that we have already doubled last years shipments.

 

At the market, we often joke that the Strawberry Onions are planted on the edges to “keep the elephants away”.  At home, we use Strawberry Onions almost exclusively when they are in season mostly because they are so sweet, but I prefer them because they won’t make me cry!  You can read this earlier post with our favorite way to enjoy them.  Have you ever tried our Strawberry Onions?  How do you enjoy them?

    A visitor to the Ybor City Saturday market last week from upstate NY, I purchased two of these onions. They are wonderful. I wish I had known about them before coming to the market – I would have purchased several more!

    can you use the greens from the onions in any way? They smell like maybe in a salad.

    I would like to grow a few of these onions in my garden, but can’t find where to buy the bulbs or seeds. Can you help?

      Unfortunately we do not sell them. Have you tried a google search?

      • Georgia says:

        Do you ship them to Pa via UPS? We were just given one from a friend and LOVED it. We’ve just been having raw onion and beet sandwiches. We grow tons of Organic produce but this looks like I will have to try to have shipped to me since it’s not warm enough here to grow through the winter. Thanks!

    My parents no longer own their winter home in FL and I miss my onions! Can you ship them to Iowa? Thanks for your quick reply!
