This modern French variety is well worth growing. Firm, pink flesh and a coppery tinge to the skin make these banana shaped bulbs very attractive as well as being crammed with flavour. High yields and a good storer too.
Sweeter and milder than onions, shallots have twice the amount of vitamin C and are also rich in vitamins A, B and E. They are invaluable in sauces, dressings, and salads, and notice how often TV chefs use them. This variety is really special and give great results when planted in the spring. All of our bulbs are certified as disease and virus free.
We supply individual, mature bulbs which, when re-planted, grow on to form clusters of up to 7 shallots usually ready to harvest in July. A 500g pack contains between 15 and 30 bulbs depending upon variety.
