SKU ATT54729


The culmination of 14 years’ British breeding. A round, pink brown shallot with crisp, white flesh tinged with pink. Shallots are higher in dry matter content than onions and the concentration of volatiles (which make you cry) is higher. Shallots are also higher in sugars which, masked in the raw state, are noticeable when cooked to a high temperature as they caramelise and make the shallot taste sweeter.

Sow thinly into well raked soil where the plants are to be cropped. Make succesional sowings, 1cm (½in) deep in drills 30cm (12in) apart. Thin seedlings to 5cm (2in) apart when large enough to handle.
