Organic French Grey Shallot- These, friends, are the shallots that earned their delectable reputation. Lusciously sweet and a treat to caramelize, French Greys are an entirely separate genus/species than Dutch and seed-grown shallots. Accept no imitations.

French Greys are only grown from bulbs in rough and humble, cream-bronze skin. They are notably more petite and elongated compared to Dutch Red and many other shallots, like delectable ivory apostrophes.

In the kitchen, we reserve French Greys for the finishing touch. We'll chop a pound of onion for ratatouille while we mince five French Greys to caramelize and tuck on the top of each bowl, their sweet crunch adding the ultimate finish. Used well, even a handful of French Greys will transform many meals.

Alas, French Greys do not store as the Dutch shallots do, so we savor them mid-summer through December, enjoying the Dutch Reds over the long winter.

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!

16-18 bulbs per 1/2 pound

Allium Ocshaninii

Tastes good, quite small August 6, 2019
Reviewer: Michele from chicago burbs  
I thought I failed at growing shallots but it turns out this variety is maybe a bit smaller than what I was expecting.  They have a great flavor but since they are so small I'm peeling way more than I'd like to do for a single recipe.  I'm going to try the dutch red this year to see if I get a better size shallot.

Some look good June 15, 2019
Reviewer: Robin Freeman from Killingeorth CT, CT United States  
I’m not sure if I did something wrong, but not all came up. The ones that did look ok I think. It’s my first time planting shallots, so we’ll see how it goes.

Negative feedback June 14, 2019
Reviewer: John Krull from Cheektowaga, NY United States  
In the past I have submitted feedback and have failed to ever get a response from you guys, so why bother now. Also you will probably notice I didn't order any thing from you this year.
