This item was last sold on : 10/05/17
Kula onions are medium to large in size and have a squat, globular shape with a pale yellow to golden skin. The thin papery peel surrounds a multi-layered, firm, crisp, white flesh. Kula onions are not overly pungent and have a high water content. Even raw, their flavor is extremely mild, sweet and nutty, as they lack the stark sulfuric compounds of other commonly found onion varieties. When cooked Kula onions can have caramel, hazelnut, and almost vanilla tasting notes.
Kula onions are available in the early spring through early winter.
The Kula onion is a yellow granex hybrid variety grown in the volcanic mountainous regions of Kula, Maui. This sweet onion variety is named for its growing region, Kula, versus its variety, much like European wines are labeled for where they are grown versus their varietal. The sweet and mild flavor is said to rival some of the more well known sweet onions in the market, such as the Vidalia or Walla Walla. Growers in Maui have trademarked "Kula Grown" as a way to differentiate this particular sweet onion variety.
Although they can and should be eaten raw, the sweetness of a Kula onion should also be utilized in various applications to enhance its sweetness or to impart more complex flavors. Kula onions can be dry-roasted, sautéed, grilled, caramelized or braised. Complimentary ingredients include butter, cardamon, celery, chicories, cloves, curry, foods cooked over a wood-fire, especially chicken, steak and pork, foods rich in umami such as mushrooms, yeasty breads, seaweed, ripe cheeses and braised meats, roasted nuts, asparagus, pineapple, shelling beans, smoked fish, pickled vegetables, citrus and chiles.
Kula onions grow on the upper slopes of the dormant volcano, Mount Haleakala. Their growing season is earlier than most sweet onion varieties so they are typically the first sweet onion to appear in spring.
