Banner Vidalia harvest wrapping up with storage full


VIDALIA, GA — Some growers here are calling this the best Vidalia onion crop in 30 years — all agree it's the best in recent memory with great volume and sizing trending toward jumbo and colossal.

The last of the onions in the field will be cleaned up any day now, with storage facilities already full and a guarantee of premium Vidalias through August, making for a seamless transition to the Peruvian season.
