The Sweet Onion of Hyde County’s Blacklands

Record #:
Wilson Daughtry grows Mattamuskeet Sweet Onions at his Hyde County farm, Alligator River Growers, in eastern North Carolina’s “blacklands”. The flavor and texture of this sweet onion variety depends on the climate, weather and peat soil near Lake Mattamuskeet. The onion is high in demand due to its short growth period in June and July.
