Description

A banana-shallot, very sweet which cooks down nicely with lovely mild flavour. Easy to grow and a good storer.

Care Tips

Shallots are somewhat drought tolerant and require only occasional weeding and watering during particularly dry periods, but they do need evenly moist soil for best production. If the soil dries out it will affect your crop.
