I like them too. My partner in crime doesn't like them though. Says they're too mild and don't taste like a "real" onion. LOL.

I have begun to see the 1015's for sale at the roadside stands around here. I think the 1015's and Noonday onions are very close cousins to the Vidalias. From what I understand, if they are cooked, you can hardly tell the difference between the Noonday and Vidalia, but if you just bite into a raw one, you can surely tell. The Vidalia is much sweeter. I am not an onion connoisseur though .

UB, you ever tried any 1015 or Noonday, Texas onions?

Hey, thanks for the onion info. I was just wondering about them Vidalias yesterday. One question though. if I were to buy a large amount of them, what is the best way to store them so they last longer and don't rot?

My Gramma used to drop an onion in the foot of pantyhose and tie a knot, then drop another in and tie a knot and continue that process 'till they are filled with onions. She'd hang them over a hook in her cellar and cut off below the knot when she wanted an onion. They really looked funny but it worked for her.
