Red Sun Shallot Onion Seeds

[90-120 days] This beautiful red-skinned shallot offer higher yields than just about every other red shallot out there—especially when you plant from sets. The oblong, burgundy-coloured bulbs open up to a superbly crisp white flesh and mild yet slightly spicy taste. When put away properly, the bulbs can store for over 6 months.

Great raw, cooked, and pickled! (We like to sauté ours in butter or olive oil. Oh so delicious!) You can also use the immature shoots as spring onions or scallions.
