Description

'Shallot- Roderique Echalion' seeds

Allium cepa var. aggregatum

  • Long tapered bulbs
  • Mild flavour
  • Suited to cold climates

Biennial (usually grown as an annual) traditional French echalion with a long tapered shape and copper pink skin. Bulbs have a mild, sweet flavour and can be used in dressings, sauces, soups and stews, and eaten cooked, pickled or raw. The green leaves can also be eaten like a spring onion, leaving at least half of the leaf to provide energy for the bulbs to grow.

Echalions or echalots are crosses between onions and true shallots. Also known as 'Banana Shallot'. This is a long day variety suited to cold climates. Matures mid season.

Seeds per gram: 340
