Unlike garlic, shallots can be spring-planted. Though they’re often 80% as abundant as fall-sown shallots, 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! And did you know? Shallots are one of the hungriest crops in your garden! We feed our soil as well as our garlic with our Organic Garlic & Shallot Fertilizer as well as our Fish & Kelp Emulsion.

Organic Dutch Red Shallot

Shallots are as easy to grow as they are delicious! And abundant: We often harvest 20+ shallots for each 1 we plant. Plant each bulb in the fall, when you plant your garlic. For us here in the Finger Lakes of New York, in Zone 5, anytime Halloween to Thanksgiving is optimal. Plant each bulb’s top one inch deep and six inches apart in rows, with at least six inches between rows. Mulching reduces frost-heaving and weed pressure while increasing moisture retention. Keep well-weeded and well-watered throughout spring and summer, harvesting once tops begin to fall over. Cure and store 12+ months.
