Yes, that's right. The onion of your dreams. The one that would never, ever make you cry.
For those who loves cooking (or at least tried to do it), you may have known the pain onions give. Chop, chop, chop you go as tears stream down on your cheeks. But not anymore. Introducing the tearless onions that could change cooking forever!
But before that, do you know why onions make us cry? Two words: defense mechanism. Its smell aims to "make us cry" so "we won't eat them".
Sunion, as the breeder claims, will keep you from shedding such tear. And nope, this isn't GMO. No genetical modification, just an all natural cross-breeding method that took three decades to make.
“This onion is the product of more than 30 years of research and development to grow an onion that actually decreased in pungency during storage,” Sunions breeder Rick Watson said in a press release.
Together with farmers at L&L AG Production, Hartley Produce, and Perry & Sons Farms, they were able to reduce such compounds that make you cry. Talk about chop, chop, chop as smile spreads across your face (like a fucking maniac).
Today, they're growing Sunions in Idaho, Nevada, and Washington. What's more? You can buy it in select grocery stores! Too good to be true, don't you think? But hey, can you imagine how great it'd be if it actually works?
Changing the whole cooking game, one less tear at a time.
