A Bright Idea

Sunions are a new type of onion that grows sweeter every day. And unlike regular cooking onions, they cause no tears when cut.

Sunions​ ​didn't​ ​happen​ ​by​ ​accident.​ ​It​ ​took​ ​over​ ​three ​decades​ ​of​ ​investment,​ ​development, careful​ ​farming​ ​and​ ​hard​ ​work​ ​to​ ​grow​ ​this​ ​game​ ​changing​ ​onion​ ​and​ ​we​ ​don't​ ​take​ ​that​ ​for granted.​ ​When​ ​Sunions​ ​are​ ​harvested,​ ​they're​ ​stored​ ​and​ ​triple​ ​tested​ ​for​ ​peak​ ​flavor​ ​and maximum​ ​tearlessness.​ ​Then,​ ​and​ ​only​ ​then,​ ​do​ ​Sunions​ ​growers​ ​ship​ ​them​ ​to​ ​customers around​ ​the​ ​country.​ ​Sunions​ ​are​ ​sure​ ​to​ ​brighten​ ​consumers'​ ​kitchens​ ​and​ ​meals​ ​-​ ​no​ ​tears necessary!


Sunions are not a genetically modified product and were grown through an all-natural cross-breeding program. Unlike all other onions, Sunions become sweeter every day. Volatile compounds in onions are responsible for tearing and pungent flavor and the amounts of those compounds in other onions remain the same or increase over time. In Sunions, these compounds do the exact opposite and decrease to create a tearless, sweet and mild onion. 


Sunions are currently grown only in Nevada and Washington. Their tearless quality and incredible flavor profile that is consistently sweet, mild and crunchy is all thanks to a tightly-controlled brand promise that Sunions must be certified to be both tearless and sweet before shipping to grocery stores. This certification process is unique to Sunions and sets them apart from all other onions on the market. Availability this year begins in mid-December and will continue until March or April, depending on supply.
