California’s flat sweet onion season underway

California flat sweet onions are now in season. Progressive Produce and its division, Keystone Fruit Marketing, have a comprehensive year-round sweet onion program that features a variety of onions from around the globe, including Vidalias, Walla Walla, and Mayan Sweets from Peru and Mexico. The addition of California flat sweet onions introduces a local variety known for its taste and versatility.

"The California flat sweet onions marks a significant addition to our onion portfolio," says Dr. Oscar Guzman, vice president of marketing and sales. "These onions are cultivated with care under the optimal conditions of the Californian climate, ensuring a product that enhances any culinary experience, whether grilled, sautéed, or served raw."

The reception from customers has already signaled a promising addition to the market. Progressive's sweet onions have received acclaim, even from those devoted to other varieties. "Going into meetings, everyone talked about 1015s, but walking out, they were all praises for Progressive's Mexican and California sweets," said one customer.

Available in a 40-lb carton and a 2-lb bag, California flat sweet onions cater to both retail and food service providers. They present an opportunity to support local agriculture while reducing freight costs and environmental impact. "Opting for our California sweets not only supports regional farmers but also guarantees a fresher product for our customers," says Dr. Guzman.

California flat sweet onions will be on display at the West Coast Produce Expo from May 30 to June 1. Visit Progressive Produce at Booth #204 to explore the distinctive flavors and sustainable advantages of these freshly harvested onions.
