Product Description
Plump, rosy bulbs wrapped in papery skins with a hint of purple color, shallots have flavor reputed to be far superior to that of scallions for delicate sauces and cream soups. Shallots are mild enough to eat raw, but robust enough to stand up to intense heat. An improvement over seed-grown shallots, Red Sun promises higher yields of full-sized shallots than other varieties. Round, red-skinned bulbs have crisp white flesh with a gourmet flavor that shines when sautéed in butter or olive oil. Green shoots can also be used as green onion or scallion substitute. In France, shallots are chopped into vinaigrettes and stuffings, and baked in tarts. Crispy, fried shallots make a wonderful topping for soups, salads, and fish. Shallots are a carefree crop to grow once established and are a great storage crop, able to keep for 6 months or more. 120 days to maturity.
