Zebrune Shallot Seeds

100 days. This French heirloom is also known as Cuisse de Poulet du Poitou, which translates as the "leg of the chicken". It's an apt description for the drumstick-esque, pinkish-brown, elongated bulbs, which have a mild, sweet flavor perfect for delicate, gourmet dishes. Zebrune resists bolting and stores well. (OP.)

  • 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.
