  • Recommended by the Royal Horticultural Society

A uniform and attractive brown-skinned shallot which produces good, fleshy bulbs with a delicious flavour- milder than onions and a little sweeter. Lovely to saute or light fry and add to sauces.

With RHS Award of Garden Merit Golden Gourmet has really impressed expert growers and they laud this variety on account of its suitability to growing in the UK climate.

In every bulb there is an impressive amount of vitamin C and they are also rich in vitamins A, B and E, great for a warming meal when you're feeling out of sorts.

Every bulb stores well, keeping well for several months when hung up in a cool and dry place.
