1015Y Texas Super Sweet
- Yellow, globe shaped, sweet, open pollinated
- Size Potential: Up to 6"
- Storage Potential: 2 to 3 months
- Days to Harvest: 115
The onion that is the most famous in Texas is also one of the sweetest. It is called the 1015Y for the ideal date to plant (Oct 15th of what year you are in) and Y stands for yellow. However this means the seed should be planted then, that date is for seed only. And whether you are a novice or beginner, the Texas Supersweet, is the perfect onion to add to your garden. They have an off-white flesh and are very sweet and flavorful, excellent for salads, slices, grilling and cooking. Known its great flavor and large size, disease resistance, and very little pyruvate (which is that substance in onions that makes you cry like a baby when you are cutting them up). Under the correct growing conditions you should produce good yields of 6″, sweet, yellow onions..We continue to produce our own seed to ensure availability. Don't be fooled by imposters; there are a lot of people who aren't selling true 1015 onion plants. This variety was developed by Texas A&M. There were several other "dated" varieties that were developed but this variety was chosen as the most flavorful. Matures approximately 10 days later than Texas Legend.
The total price of your onion plant order will be determined at checkout. Pricing is based on the total number of bunches purchased (see chart to the left).

Planted a set of 1015Y's last January and harvested the last of May. Large and sweet and I used the last onion in November. Kept them dry and shaded outside and they cured nicely. I will definitely reorder from Dixondale this year. A real homerun.

Thank you all for the best onions I've grown in florida. These babies last for months after harvest, sweet till the last one. I can't wait till they come out in November. Thanks again for a real quality product.
- Gigantic and sweet, sweet, sweet!

Many years ago, when 1015s first came out they were really sweet and until I ordered these onion sets I hadn't been able to find 1015s that were sweet. These were sweet enough you could take a bite out of one of them and be able to eat it! I try to use these in their raw state to get all that sweetness. These make the best onion rings you could possibly find. Just fabulous! Will buy again when they are back in season. You can't go wrong, unless you don't plant them correctly, as they need full sun. They are just huge also. One that I cut up completely filled an 8-cup container. Just gigantic!
- 1015 onions
- posted by Dennis Foster on 2013-01-12 07:45:41
Ive been growing onions for several years and the 1015's are by far the most reliable Ive found. I have an established garden in Coastal Carolina and even when other varieties dont do so well the 1015's always seem to produce a bumper crop. Last year the post office broke the packaging the onions were shipped in and wrapped them in plastic.They arrived yellow and half dead. Most the onions grew but not real well. I still got a bumper crop of 1015's though. It has always been a pleasure doing business with Dixondale. They have always been upright in all their dealings with me.

I have tried to grow onions for too many years with poor success at best. Last year i tried your 1015Y Texas Super Sweet onions and followed your Planting Guide to the T. What a great success!!! It was better than I ever dreamed. Just a super crop of large sweet onions. It was so successful I had to take pictures and show my friends. I will be ordering again for the 2010 season.

All gardeners planted Tx supersweet after seeing my results last year. We planted over 30 sets and are ready to buy for the next year.
