Shallots are used widely in gourmet cooking, lending a mild onion with a hint of garlic flavor. Growing shallots from sets in the spring is simple and cost-effective, especially if you already love garlic and onions, plus they store well into the following year, 6 months or more. These shallots are oval with reddish-pink skin and each bulb multiplies into a cluster of 6-10 more bulbs. The green shoots can also be used as a green onion or chive substitute. 1 pound = approximately 20-25 bulbs
Plant in early spring, 6-8” apart, 1” deep, so the bulb tips are at soil level. Separate cloves if needed. Plant into nutrient-rich soil, amend with compost and fertilizer if needed. Water regularly, keeping the soil evenly moist and well-weeded. Harvest when tops die back, 90-100 days, separate bulbs, and dry in a warm well ventilated for 2-3 weeks.
