What Are Vidalia Onions?
Originally discovered by accident in the 1930s during the Great Depression, Vidalia® onions have grown to be considered as a favorite across America. The Vidalia Onion Act of 1986 granted the trademark of the name "Vidalia® onions" and defined the growing region in South Georgia. Vidalia onions are grown from a distinctive Granex seed, then packed and sold on or after the official pack date annually.
If you have grown and plan to sell Vidalia® onions this year, you must complete the online license application and submit it to the Department of Agriculture by March 1, 2023.

If acreage planted should change, or any other information such as name, address, label information, or packer from that indicated on the report filed by March 1, 2023 then you must submit a supplemental report no later than April 15, 2023.
