Vidalia onions are fairly young, considering they were first discovered in 1931 during the tough days of the Great Depression. They grow exclusively in Georgia and are named for the town of Vidalia which is located close to the first fields that grew the crop. The onion is sweet because of the low sulphur content in the sandy Georgia soil. It’s quite possible you would not be able to grow Vidalias sweet if you did not have the right soil mix and make up.
