Onion by any other name tastes just as sweet-Not to some folk!

2014-06-13 - 1535 Bull Run Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Barbara Armitage. Fresh from the garden sweet onions will be available at the Tucker's Station Farm's booth at the Farmer's Market on the Square on Saturday June 14, 2014. FM2 is open every Saturday from 8am to 1pm CT at the Adair Annex Parking Lot, 424 Public Square, Columbia, KY. At Tucker's Station Farms we grow "Yellow Granex" sweet onions - never heard of them? Well, you may have heard them called by their other name "Vidalia". Vidalia is also a song by Sammy Kershaw, it's about a woman who's not particularly "sweet" but we won't go into that. Here's an interesting fact: The "Vidalia Onion Act" was passed in 1986 by the Georgia State Legislation trademarking the Vidalia Onion. The only onions that can legally be called Vidalia must be grown within a specified 20 county area of Georgia. Interestingly the "Vidalia Onion" or it's original name Yellow Granex was developed in Texas by Dixondale Farms.
