French Red Shallot Fall-Shipped Bulb Sets

100 days. The rich creamy flavor and texture of French Shallots elevate the delicacy of almost any recipe. These sets are little individual bulbs that you plant to yield ten to 15 times as many Shallots. Their dark green shoots will poke through the soil within weeks of planting. We will ship one pound of choice bulbs to you in early fall. One pound will plant roughly 20 feet of row: enough to keep Shallot lovers happy! Hardiness zones: 4-10. In cold zones plant in early spring.Fall-Shipped French Red Shallots. A good variety for novice shallot-growers, our French Red Shallots are amazingly productive; are easy to peel and dice and have an intense, spicy flavor. In the summer, when the top greens start to die back, they will yield Shallots the size of chestnuts with coppery russet skins and purple pink flesh. Plus, they store very well, in fact, they can last up to a year when stored properly in a cool, dry spot (between 50°F and 60°F).

One pound of sets.

  • Information

  • The delicate sweetness of Shallots has long been popular in French cuisine, with good reason. Never bitter, Shallots add distinctive flavor to vinaigrette dressings, elegant sauces and savory winter soups. We like to sauté loads of finely chopped Shallots in butter and freeze them as a thin layer in plastic, self-locking freezer bags. It is so convenient to take out a thin envelope of sautéed Shallots and snap off a piece when making classic mussels meunière, pan seared scallops with a finishing beurre blanc sauce or Sunday morning gruyère omelets. Hardiness zones: 4-10. Each 1-pound Shallot Set is enough to plant a 20-foot row. The number of little bulbs per set varies annually. On average, a 1-pound Shallot Set will yield 10 to 15 times as many mature Shallots. To plant, separate the bulbs and plant individually, 1" deep and 4" to 6" apart in rows spaced 18" apart. Dark green shoots will emerge within a couple of weeks of planting. Deer resistant.

    Shallot Sets may not be shipped to Georgia, Idaho, Nevada, Hawaii (seeds are OK!) or or the following five counties in the State of Washington: Adams, Benton, Franklin, Grant and Klickitat.
    Our Shallot Sets are shipped directly to you at the proper time for planting for your horticultural zone.
