IT’S TIME FOR OUR PERUVIAN SWEETS!
As we close out our Georgia-grown Vidalia® sweet onion season, we are in full swing with our Peruvian sweets. We are currently shipping our Bland Farms Premium Sweet Onions from Peru, and the crop looks great!
Our Peru crop is the same identical variety as our domestic Vidalia. Our agronomy staff has worked tirelessly over many years to cultivate this sweet onion in Peru allowing us to never miss a beat–so we can get the same wonderful sweet onion to our retailers every day of the year.
