Sunions®, the tearless and sweet onions, have been harvested by the growers of Peri & Sons Farms and Onions 52. Now that the harvesting stage is complete, Sunions will undergo a curing process until they reach their peak flavor, which is determined by a triple-test process.
“It took over three decades of development, careful farming, and hard work to grow this game-changing onion, and we do not take that for granted,” said Sunions project manager, Jeff Boettge, “We take pride in the uniqueness of our onions and take several steps to ensure they deliver the Sunions brand promise.”
Unlike other onions, Sunions tearless onions improve in storage, becoming sweeter with every added day. Other onions tend to become more pungent in storage, resulting in the classic “onion tears” and sharp taste. Together, the unique qualities of Sunions create the tearless and sweet onion that consumers enjoy. Sunions will be available in select retailers late this fall.
Visit the growers, Onions 52 and Peri & Sons Farms, at the PMA Virtual Fresh Summit on October 13-15.
