Walla Walla onions can trace their heritage back to the French regions of Corsica. When they made their way to North America, the First Nations Plateau tribes gave them the name Walla Walla, which means “many waters.” Well, these onions are packed with vitamins, as well as compounds to help lower your blood pressure. They may not store for long, but that won’t be an issue because they’re certainly big on flavor!
