Maui onions have a peak season from early April through June but they are available year round.
Maui onions are a short day granex variety of sweet onions. They need only about nine hours of sunlight which is best suited to warmer climates and mild winters. Maui onion's sweetness cannot be duplicated if not grown in the volcanic earth of the upland slopes of Mt. Haleakala, where they are cultivated. They are sown on the late fall and harvested in early Spring. The mild winters of Maui make them one of the first Spring varieties to appear.
Two characteristics set the Maui onion apart from other yellow onions: the high sugar and high moisture content of its flesh. This combination makes it exceptionally sweet and juicy. It is also very crisp and mild when perfectly ripe.
Maui onions are ubiquitously known as a true raw-eating onion but they can also be cooked utilizing their sweetness in a variety of methods for soups, slow roasting stews, braising meats, grilling fish and simply sauteing. Thinly slice potatoes and Maui onions, then layer in a baking dish with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake until cooked through and browned. Slowly cook sliced onions with butter, balsamic and rice vinegars, sugar and garlic until caramelized and use as a savory marmalade. Saute sliced onions with carrots, celery and ginger, then add stock and serve as soup. Maui onions will keep, cool and dry, for up to a month.
