SKU: 40896

500g pack

Allium ascalonicum

From :- To be confirmed

A top class shallot with rich brown/red skin of great quality. Planted in autumn or spring, it is generally bolt resistant and produces a splendid crop of mild flavoured bulbs suitable for using fresh, in casseroles and for pickling. The crisp flesh is tinged with pink and the bulbs keep well after harvest.

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.
