A Sweet Onion Like No Other
Since 1989, OsoSweet has been dedicated to providing the highest quality sweet onions available during the winter selling season. No other sweet onion comes close.

One-Third More Sugar
OsoSweets are grown high up in the Andes Mountains of Chile, where the rich volcanic soil, warm days and cool nights help create a sweet onion with incomparable texture, flavor, and sweetness - OsoSweets average up to one -third more sugar than other "sweets."

The Cook's Favorite Sweet Onion
And, unlike other sweet onions, OsoSweets maintain their texture and shape when cooked, developing a deep, rich flavor. No wonder it's become the cook's favorite sweet onion.

Consistency You Can Count On
OsoSweets maintain the highest consistency in the sweet onion business. All growers follow the same strict protocol, which guarantees uniform quality throughout each harvest. In addition, grading standards are among the highest in the industry.
