Q: I am coming for a Savannah vacation and was wondering if I could find big bags of Vidalia onions now.
A: The fresh Vidalia onion season ends in early summer in Georgia but some producers have special storage facilities for out of season sales. Unlike common onions, Vidalia onions are very perishable. They have a high water and sugar content, making them susceptible to bruising when shipped in bulk. See www.vidaliaonion.org for a list of shippers who can send you these delicious treats.
