History: The Walla Walla Onion, renowned for its exceptionally sweet flavor, traces its origins to the island of Corsica. Brought to Walla Walla, Washington, by a French soldier, these onions quickly adapted to the local climate, gaining popularity for their large size and mild taste. Over the years, they have become a staple in American cuisine, celebrated for their unique sweetness and versatility.

Uses: Walla Walla Onions are highly valued in culinary circles for their sweetness, making them perfect for raw consumption in salads, sandwiches, and salsas. Their mild flavor also makes them ideal for caramelizing, adding a rich depth to various dishes. Due to their low sulfur content, they are less likely to cause tears when chopped, making them a favorite among home cooks.

Growth Habit & Planting Instructions: Walla Walla Onions require full sun and well-drained soil for optimal growth. They should be planted in early spring, about 1/4 inch deep and spaced 4-6 inches apart in rows. Regular watering and fertilizing will ensure healthy growth. These onions are biennial but usually grown as annuals. They reach maturity in about 110-120 days, when the tops begin to fall over and yellow. After harvesting, they should be used relatively quickly as they have a shorter storage life compared to other onion varieties.
