All-purpose and most popular, approximately 87% of the U.S. onion crop is comprised of yellow varieties. Yellow Onions are full-flavored and are a reliable standby for cooking almost anything. Yellow onions turn a rich, dark brown when cooked bringing out this variety’s nutty, mellow, often sweet, quality when caramelized.
Approximately 5% of U.S. onion production is dedicated to white onions. Due to the compact nature of their cell structure, white onions do not store quite as long as other varieties. With a taste that’s more tangy than sweet or sour, this is the onion of choice when making Latin and Central American dishes, especially Mexican food. They have a golden color and sweet flavor when sautéed.
These storage onions are sweet because they have a lower concentration of sulfur allowing the sugar content to stand out. People who like onions but dislike the strong taste, will find sweet onions a good alternative. Sweets are available year round from many different shipping geographies, including the United States, Peru and Mexico.
