1015Y Texas Super Sweet Onions are Texas’s most famous onions and are also some of the sweetest! It’s called the 1015Y in honor of the ideal date to plant the seed (Oct 15th), and Y stands for yellow. Whether you are a novice or beginner, the Texas Super Sweet Onions are the perfect onion to add to your garden. They have an off-white flesh and are very sweet and flavorful, excellent for salads, slices, grilling, and cooking. 1015Y Texas Super Sweet Onions are known for their great flavor and large size, disease resistance, and very little pyruvate (which is that substance in onions that makes you cry like a baby when you are cutting them up). Under the correct growing conditions you should produce good yields of 6″, sweet, yellow onions.
We continue to produce our own seed to ensure availability. Don’t be fooled by imposters; there are a lot of people who aren’t selling true 1015 onion plants. This variety was developed by Texas A&M. There were several other “dated” varieties that were developed but this variety was chosen as the most flavorful. Matures approximately 10 days later than Texas Legend.
