Description

Golden Shallot (Bulb)

Allium cepa var. aggregatum

Synonyms: Allium ascalonicum

NOT TO NT, TAS, WA

  • Sweet mild flavour
  • Stores well
  • One bulb produces 4-12 shallots

Shallots are members of the Allium family, and grow as a clump (or 'set') loosely attached at the base. Golden shallots are medium to large (similar in size to a small onion) with a sweet, mild flavour. Golden shallots can be stored for up to 12 months. In the kitchen, Golden shallots have firm white flesh that caramelises well. Use them in soups, stews, pickles or raw. The tops of the green leaves can also be eaten like a spring onion, leaving at least half the height to provide energy for the bulbs to grow.

If you have struggled to grow onions in the past, shallots are more forgiving and will not disappoint, each bulb multiplying from one bulb to 8-12 bulbs in 25 weeks.

How To Grow

  1. Choose a location in full sun with well draining soil.
  2. Dig over soil; shallots prefer a rich, loamy soil without manure added.
  3. Space rows 20cm apart.
  4. Plant bulbs 20cm apart with the pointed tips facing upwards.
  5. Plant 5-8cm deep so the tips are still visible above the soil.
  6. Keep well watered during warm weather.
  7. Harvest when leaves begin to fall over and before the plant flowers.
  8. Cure bulbs in a shady, well-ventilated area for 2-3 weeks before cutting the dried leaves off 3-4cm above the bulb.
  9. Store in a cool, dry place.
