The secret to growing really sweet, mild onions is to start with a sweet, short-day variety and have soil that is very low in sulfur. 'Yellow Granex PRR' (pink root resistant) is one of the few varieties approved by the Georgia Agricultural Commission to be sold as a Vidalia® onion when it is grown in approved areas near Vidalia, GA. Large (3"–4") and excellent for eating fresh. As a short-day onion, it grows best from fall to spring in the southern states, south of the 35th parallel. Not recommended for cold-climate areas unless greenhouse grown.

Harvesting: When onion tops have fallen over and turned yellow or brown, they are ready for harvest. Harvest in the morning, lifting onions with a garden fork. Dry them in the garden in the sun for 2 to 3 days, lightly covering the bulbs with straw, or the tops of other onions to prevent sunscald. Cure onions for 3 to 7 days in a dry area with good air circulation. Once dry, cut the roots to 1/4", and the greens to 1" to create a seal, preventing decay.

This is a delicious onion and stored very well for me too! Last year I harvested on April 29th and ate my last one in September it was still in perfect shape. I planted more this year and some are huge!
