How much do you pay for vidalia onions?

sweet vidalia onions?
I went to the store yesturday and they were marked $3.94 a pound! To me that is a lot esp. considering that not one of them was a pound or less!
Just wondering....

Yikes!!!! I've not seen them over 99 cents this year....89 cents is common...79 cents at times....Then again in a Kroger store the other day I saw a 10lb bag of Russets for $8.99...needless to say...I left them on the table!!

There is no difference....that I've ever known/heard of. Maybe the 3.94 was suppose to be a 3 lb (??) bag of onions...and they just filled the bin with bulk.

.89/lb here is common, too.
And as far as labeling, make sure the actual onion has the Vidalia label on it. Otherwise someone may be confusing Mayan, or 1088 (?) or one of the other lookalike sweet onions.
