Yellow Moon This golden-skinned shallot is the perfect companion to Picasso. It gives a heavy crop of high quality, healthy bulbs whether planted in spring or autumn. The plants are not prone to bolting and the harvested bulbs store very well. Flavour and texture are both excellent.
Bistro Perfect raw in salads, pickled or added to a host of casseroles or other hot dishes, Bistro gives an excellent crop of fairly mild, rich golden bulbs. It can be planted from February onwards.
Unfortunately, due to an overwhelming demand, we are unable to supply Shallot Bistro from any orders placed after 18th March. We know how important gardening is, especially at this time of the planting year, so we will therefore automatically substitute with a similar variety called Golden Gourmet.
Golden Gourmet is an established variety that we have sold for many years now and is therefore tried and tested and loved by our customers. It has good yields of high quality, golden round bulbs.
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.
