Thanks for the information regarding soils, and the 1015y onion
developed by Texas A&M.  I had ordered both kinds from Territorial Seed
Company, and when I called this week to have them shipped now instead of
late April, they said both onions were shipped out of Texas.   I was
also told that I should watch out for any heavy frost, because it could
harm the young plants.

Next year, I will plant more of which ever kind do best in my garden
soil, and I will try the Candy onion, also.  We liked the Vidalia onion
after buying it in a local grocery store here.  I have never tasted the
1015y Texas Sweet onion, but after reading the information in the seed
catalog, I thought it could be an excellent choice.  A high school
classmate listed, in the yearbook,  his favorite food as "an onion
sandwich".   I thought that sounded very "different", but these mild
type of onions just might be alright as a sandwich, using just butter as
the spread.  I don't think that would ever be my favorite food, however.

Thanks for your responses.
