Allium ascalonicum
Item Code: 56172



This long banana shallot has a superb, highly praised, robust flavour that is perfect in salads and casseroles. With copper-coloured skins, each set produces a cluster of up to nine bulbs and stores well.

Shallots are small, golden-brown members of the onion family and have a sweet, delicate flavour and aroma. They are more subtle than onions but less pungent than garlic. The main bulb is made up of several smaller ones, which are split and dried at harvest time.

The distinctive shallot flavour can be used for cooking or pickling, they are an indispensable (and often undervalued) ingredient for any kitchen, lending their fresh flavour to everything from dressings, stocks, pies & quiches, with them also being delicate enough to eat raw and easy to roast to melt-in-your-mouth perfection.

Easy to grow, producing several shallots for summer harvesting. They take very little space and are guaranteed to repay your efforts with a bountiful crop. Approx. 30 shallots per 500g pack, depending upon variety.
