Little Bear Produce is proud to offer the most “eatable” onion available anywhere. Now in its 5th generation of planting, our delicious HoneySweet® Onion is making a name for itself industry-wide for its mild, sweet taste that has customers raving. Unlike many of our competitors, our exclusively developed seed is grown in five regions, which allows us to provide the HoneySweet® Onion year-round. As with all of our produce, Little Bear closely supervises the growing, harvesting and packaging of our HoneySweet® onions to ensure that only the highest quality, best tasting onions arrive at your dinner table. Each onion is evaluated carefully and held to the highest standards including:
honey-sweet

  • Assessing the size and shape of each onion
  • Possessing a light, bright yellow color with a fresh appearance
  • Free of skin damage and stains
  • Assessing that each onion has been properly cured
  • Ensuring that each has a sweet, mild flavor

Better Than the Rest

Thanks to partnerships with the National Onion Labs, Inc. and Texas A&M University, the pyruvic acid of our onions are tested continually to measure sweetness. While most onions in the industry have a pungency level of 5, our HoneySweet® Onions consistently rates with a pungency level of 3.5 or less.  Early testing on our latest generation of onions are now showing pungency levels of 2.5 or less. This means that no matter what, our HoneySweet® onions are the most mild and delicious onions on the market today.
