Sweet Deal!
Texas 1015 Super Sweet Onions are consider to be one of the sweetest of the sweet domestic onions. High water and sugar combined with low sulfur content give these onions their unique sweet, mild flavor.

Regular sweet onion are typically 6% sugar. Super sweet onions like the Texas 1015s have recorded up to 15% sugar content! Unfortunately, this also makes them more susceptible to bruising. To prevent bruising, keep cool, dry and separated.

Developed in the early 1980′s by Dr. Leonard Pike, a horticulture professor at Texas A&M University, Texas 1015 Onions are actually named for their optimum planting date, October 15. Grown only in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, this large, prized onion was developed after ten long years of extensive research, endless testing and a million dollars in cost. As a result, Texas achieved a mild, exceptionally sweet onion that lives up to its nickname – the “Million Dollar Baby”.

Onions are Texas’ leading vegetable crop. The state produces mostly sweet yellow varieties. The sweet onion was adopted as Texas’ official state onion in 1997.
