Organic Dutch Red Shallot - Shallots are known for their sweetness, especially compared to their pungent botanical cousin, the onion. Dutch Reds are sweet indeed and such a treat to enjoy all winter long. And prolific: In mediocre soils, you'll harvest 10 bulbs for every 1 you plant. We harvest 20+ bulbs for every 1 we plant in our rich soil amended with our organic garlic & shallot fertilizer that you'll find here!
Even spring-planted, they're often 80% as abundant as fall-sown shallots, so don't hesitate if you thought you missed the window :)
Their copper-rose skins and plump one to four-inch bulbs are too handsome to tuck away in the cellar, so they reside in a beautiful bowl in our kitchen as the snow flies. It's true: Dutch Red shallots will store well over one year when cured properly.
Also, peeling them was laborious until Brian and Chrystine of Uprising Seeds taught us to slice them lengthwise and simply pop them out of their skin!
