well, that is the story / legend....but the meteorite part is true... and the fact you cant grow them the same anywhere else. they just come out as plain onions everywhere else they are grown.
I will look at onions differently now. You are blessed to live in such a beautiful place.

My hubs used to grow some onions here and he had his onion plot filled with a sand/top soil mix. They seem to do best with that kind of drainage. But I'm betting the meteorite did something to that sand down there!

the lower the sulfur content of the soil the sweeter the onion... for some reason vadalia soil has 12 % sugar also....which is abot 9 times higher than most soils anywhere else........ of course the savannah area ws nothing but rice and sugar fields for centuries...sooooo

I never ate them as a kid but I like them now. Except I do not like them with cheese.
