Zebrune Shallot Onion Seeds

[100 days from transplant] Also known as “Cuisse de Poulet du Poitou,” this wonderful French heirloom is a delicacy that’s super expensive in stores yet easy to grow in your home garden or allotment. This banana shallot (Eschalion) yields meaty, torpedo-shaped bulbs that taste great and store really well. If started early, these little beauties will often grant a heavy yield and if stored correctly, will give you shallots all the way through spring.

Magnificent fried in butter, but also tasty as a replacement for onions in salads and vegetable dishes, shallots are definitely the royalty of the allium family. Once you’ve tasted them fresh from the ground, you’ll never want to return to those over-priced store-bought shallots ever again.

Height: 45cm (18"). Spread: 10cm (4").
