Red Shallots have a mild, sweet flavour. They are ideal in Thai and Asian dishes. The bulbs are a little smaller than the gold shallots.

The flavour of Shallots is valuable in cooking as it has a similar, but less overpowering taste than onions.

Shallots are easy to grow, requiring a well drained soil and a sunny spot. Each bulb will produce 6-12 new bulbs in a season. It is a good idea to keep shallots moist during growth, they have a short root system so regular watering is important for good bulb growth. Fertilise your Shallots well for best production.

Reap what you have sewn in summer and enjoy them in your cooking. If you can resist, try and keep a couple for replanting next season. Shallot bulbs store well for long periods.
