Product Description

Red Sun will give you months of gourmet flavor. An improvement over seed-grown varieties, Red Sun has higher yields of full-sized shallots than other types. You'll harvest round, red-skinned bulbs with crisp white flesh. Delicious flavor really stands out when this shallot is sautéed in butter or olive oil. Use the shoots as a green onion or scallion substitute. Red Sun is perfect for your favorite recipes, salads or for pickling. Store bulbs 6 months or more. 90-120 days. Not available in ID, WA.
