I love a good fritter. Lightly fried batter with bits of fruit.

I found something that can make a fritter even better! Sweet Vidalia onions.
Apples and onions compliment each other in any dish. Even a sweet one like a fritter.

Quick Facts about the Breeze:

  • Harvested at optimum maturity from the rich soils and warm climate of New Zealand, Breeze™ encapsulates the perfect combination of apple traits.
  • Breeze™ apples have a solid pink-red blush over a yellow background.
  • Breeze™ is aromatic and sweet with a very crisp, dense white flesh.
  • Breeze™ is harvested in New Zealand for a two week period beginning in the middle of February.
  • They are shipped to the United States end of February/beginning of March, for an early April arrival.
  • The Breeze™ is the earliest offshore variety available in the Spring.
  • Sage Fruit has formed a partnership with Fresh Fruit Company of New Zealand and will be the exclusive supplier of Breeze™ apples in the United States.
  • In Spring 2015, 100 acres of Breeze™ apples will be planted in the state of Washington.

li>During Spring 2016, an additional 50 acres will be planted.

  • The first commercial volume of Washington grown Breeze™ apples will be available August 2017, with small quantities available in August 2016.
  • The New Zealand crop is continually increasing in production, and with the addition of a domestic crop, Sage Fruit will soon be able to supply customers with Breeze™ apples year-round.

Quick Facts about Vidalia Onions:

Be sure to check the small PLU sticker on them and look for #4159 – this means that it is an official Vidalia onion. Vidalia onions are grown during the winter months, and are only available in stores between April and September, making them a true seasonal specialty!

Proper Storage and Handling of Vidalia Onions courtesy of



The water content in Vidalia onions is much higher than in regular onions. This characteristic contributes to Vidalias’ sweet taste, but it also shortens their shelf life and makes them more susceptible to bruising.
How to store fresh sweet onions:
• One of our favorite places to store Vidalias is the veggie bin in the refrigerator. Wrap each bulb individually in paper towels, which will help absorb moisture, and place them in the crisper with the vents closed. A few will naturally go bad, but many will keep for months. Buy a big bag at the end of the season and you should have Vidalias through the holidays!
• In the legs of clean, sheer pantyhose – believe it or not this is a great way to store sweet onions. Tie a knot in between each Vidalia and simply cut above the knot when you want to use one! Be sure to hang in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area.
• On elevated racks or screens, not touching, and in a cool, dry place.
• Don’t store with potatoes, which make the onions go bad quicker.
