Ararat Shrine Vidalia Onions | 2018
If you haven't turned in your Vidalia Onion orders please do so now!! They are needed earlier than usual for the grower to pre print labes.
The Vidalia Onion is grown specifically in south Georgia but enjoyed throughout the United States. Growers plant around 12,000 acres of Vidalias every fall and harvest around 16,000 pounds of onions each Spring. That equates to around 5 million 40 pound boxes.
  • The Vidalia onion is Georgia-grown, yellow grainex hybrid known for it's sweet mild flavor.
  • About 140 growers cultivate Vidalias on 14,386 acres. About 104 handlers grade, pack and distribute Vidalias.
  • About 70% of the crop is distributed through grocery stores as a specialty item. The remaining 30% is distributed through roadside stands and mail order businesses as an added-value product.
