NEW SEASON IN, IN OCTOBER. Pre order option available. Sent out early October.
This variety is well known for its strong flavoursome quality. High yielding it stores well. Hardy. Suitable for holding as stock for next year. Buy once and keep them going year on year.

Plant shallots from October to March. Suitable for autumn or spring planting. Harvest July to August.
Don’t really have any problems. Give them space and a sunny place to grow.
Favourite ways to eat them:
Saute, saute, saute because that’s my favourite way to eat them. Great in casseroles. Also good raw in a cheese sandwich and in salads too.
A closely related variety to onions and garlic, shallots probably originated in Central or Southwest Asia.
