WALLA WALLA SWEET ONIONS

The story of the Walla Walla Sweet Onions began over a century ago on the Island of Corsica, off the west coast of Italy.  It was there that a French soldier, Peter Pieri, found a sweet onion seed and brought it to the Walla Walla Valley in southeastern Washington State. 

This Sweet onion developed over generations through the process of carefully hand selecting onions from each year’s crop, ensuring exceptional sweetness, jumbo size, and round shape.  Walla Walla Sweet Onions are available Mid-June through early September. 

There is a Sweet Onion Festival in Walla Walla each July.
