Onions - sweet, keeper

Onions - sweet, keeper

We grow a wide variety of onions from sweet summer whites, red and strong yellow winter keepers.  Use raw in salads, or braised, sauteed or roasted as the quintessential base to just about every great dish known to man.


Nutrition:  Onions are high in vitamin C, folic acid, biotin, chromium, and calcium and are the richest food source of quercetin which is a potent antioxidant that has been shown to lower cholesterol, blood pressure, and triglycerides. They also contain powerful anti-cancer properties which have been found to help slow and reverse tumor growth within the body. They contain valuable sulfur compounds that are known to significantly strengthen the immune system, brain, and nervous system. These sulfur compounds also act as a heavy metal detoxifier and can help to safely remove mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and lead from the body. Onions have powerful antibacterial properties and have been shown to be able to destroy many disease-causing pathogens. Onions can help purify the digestive tract and also act as a natural diuretic and help reduce bloating and water retention.
