It might be that you are planting your onions at the wrong time of the year. Sweet onions, sometimes referred to as "short day" onions, because their growing season occurs during the fall and winter with harvest usually in spring /summer. If you're planting your onions in the spring, it can affect the flavor. You might try planting Texas Sweets this fall. Be sure to amend the bed with compost or other organic matter to help hold moisture, loosen the soil, and provide a constant source of nutrients as the bulbs grow. Hope this helps!
