Curry, a year-round supplier of sweet onions, storage onions, potatoes and blueberries, joins Gerrald’s, which grows and ships Vidalias as well as carrots and watermelons.

Brannen said Curry plans to sell the carrots and continue packing under the Gerrald’s label as well has his other Curry and Vidalia Sweetheart labels

In a typical season, Gerrald’s has packed 500,000 40-pound cartons of Vidalia onions, 500,000 equivalent packages of carrots and 300 loads of watermelon.

Gerrald, who won the 2009 Vidalia Grower of the Year award, began commercially growing Vidalias in 1985 after he had been growing cantaloupe and watermelon.

I desired a sweet Vidalia so as I was shopping at Walmart's I purchased a bag of your Vidalia onions, I had never bought them before in a bag, usually only large single ones. I placed a slice of one on my steakburger and I immediately started tearing and my nose started to run, they were the hottest onions I have eaten in a long long while, NOTHING at all sweet, I do not believe they were Valdalias, I believe they were plain old cooking onions, I am thinking about returning them to the store with this info. I just had to let you know they were awful ...NOT Valdalias !
