Strawberry Onions? Yes. They are a mild variety of onion. They grow in strawberry fields in the Plant City, Florida area, which is a major strawberry producer.
They don't get their taste from their strawberry neighbors, but they thrive on the water and fertilizer given to the strawberry plants. They used to be grown at the perimeter of the strawberry fields but production is growing, thanks to a growing demand.
It's a win-win situation.
Onions can be somewhat ordinary, I admit.

So, back in January, we were in Florida and went to a strawberry stand in Plant City, Florida.
Yes, we were told, they ship strawberry onions. In fact, they ship them all over the country.
We'll be getting our shipment next week.
We can't wait.
Will they taste as good as we remember?
