Superb Start To Onion Season With Tanimura & Antle Artisan Sweet Italian Red Onion

Spreckels, CA – Official Onion Season has begun and the demand for the Tanimura & Antle Artisan® Sweet Italian Red Onion has never been better. It is the only year round sweet red onion available in the industry and well-loved for its mild, sweet flavor and tremendous versatility.

Retailers recognize the niche that this onion fulfills in their onion category, comments Anthony Mazzuca, Onion Commodity Manager with Tanimura & Antle. Our strongest business growth continues to be on the Retail side with both our consumer bags and loose PLU stickered onions.

Tanimura & Antle has just started packing in Yuma, AZ and the Imperial Valley, CA. Supplies are excellent and the San Joaquin crop just around the corner is looking great. Sizing in Yuma and the Imperial Valley is mostly Jumbo and Extra Jumbo, and quality is very strong, says Mazzuca.

The Tanimura & Antle Artisan Sweet Italian Red Onion is a proprietary seed variety originally from Italy and a result of over 20 years of experience growing and breeding. Onions are available in 2#, 3# and 5# consumer bags, 25 lb and 50 lb sacks, and 40# cartons. To order, call the Tanimura & Antle Sales Department, 800.772.4542.
