Candy onions are large to jumbo in size, averaging fifteen centimeters in diameter, and are globular to slightly flattened in shape. The bulb is encased in thin, papery, light brown to yellow layers and the flesh is white, firm, and juicy with signature large rings. The tops of the bulb are dark green and can grow over a half a meter in height. Candy onions are crisp with a slightly sweet flavor when raw, and when cooked, they become tender with a mild, pleasant flavor. Candy onions, botanically classified as Allium cepa, are a large, hybrid variety that belongs to the Amaryllidaceae family. Created for their jumbo size, sweet flavor, and versatility in recipes, Candy onions are known as a day-neutral variety meaning they can be grown in almost any region, regardless of daylight hours. Candy onions are best suited for both raw and cooked applications such as boiling, grilling, and frying. Candy onions contain manganese, folate, fiber, potassium, and vitamins B6 and C.
