Their name comes from the date the onions are plated, October 15th. Because the days are short during the growing season, the onions have less acidity than those grown in the long, hot days of summer. In taste tests of the Texas 1015, the Vidalia onion of Georgia and the Walla Walla of Washington, the Texas onion wins again and again. Onions are usually used to enhance other flavors, but this dish makes the onion the culinary star.
