SHIPS MID-MARCH THROUGH END OF APRIL

 Red Sun Shallots Sets are used widely in gourmet cooking, lending a mild onion with a hint of garlic flavor. Growing shallots from sets in the spring is simple and cost-effective, especially if you already love garlic and onions, plus they store well into the following year, 6 months or more. These shallots are oval with reddish-pink skin and each bulb multiplies into a cluster of 6-10 more bulbs. The green shoots can also be used as a green onion or chive substitute. 1 pound = approximately 20-25 bulbs

 

 1 set (1 pound)- $14.95

PLANTING

Onion and shallots sets are easy to plant and ensure a harvest of full-sized onion bulbs. Onions- plant in full sun, 4-6” apart, 1-2” deep, Shallots- plant 6-8" apart. Start planting in early spring, as the ground can be worked. Prefers moist, well-drained fertile soil, amend with compost and/or apply organic fertilizer if needed. Heavy feeders- fertilize regularly, every 7-14 days. Harvest when the tops have fallen over, dry in a warm well ventilated for 2-3 weeks.
