Shallot Sets - Eschalote Grise

  • Catalogue Code 1040-6082
  • Pack Contents: 20x Shallot Sets

Shallot Eschalote Grise sets are the first choice in shallots for top French chefs, often referred to as a Banana Shallot.

We have chosen an improved selection producing larger sets.

Each shallot set will produce between 15 and 20 intensely flavoured shallots!

Did you know:
That Eschalote Grise is classed as a "Banana Shallot". This term is often used by cooks to describe the long bulb varieties of onions and shallots. It is more of a cooking term than one used by gardeners.

Features

  • Will flower well in full sun
  • Varieties that, in our selector's opinion, have exceptional flavour

The shallots were of various sizes, a few quite small, so I wonder if this will impact when they are harvested next year.
