French Gray Shallot 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 10 to 15 times as many Shallots. Their dark green shoots will poke through the soil within weeks of planting in fall. One pound will plant roughly 20 feet of row: enough to keep Shallot lovers happy! Hardiness zones: 5-9. Not widely available, French Gray Shallots are considered to be the true Shallot by discriminating chefs due to their especially rich flavor. These prized bulbs are pear-shaped with tough, thick, gray-blue, wrinkled skins concealing creamy purple flesh. Although it takes quite a bit more time to peel them, it is worth it because they have an out-of-this-world, luxuriant flavor all their own. As with many of the most exotic or rare delicacies, they are not long-keepers and must be savored shortly after harvest or cooked and frozen for later enjoyment. We will ship one pound of choice bulbs to you in early fall.
