AAS Winner 2021

The first ever shallot to win the AAS Winner designation, this echalion is not only great tasting but it's also beautiful. The uniform, single-centered bulbs have pretty rosy-purple inner rings that are covered in an attractive iridescent peachy to coppery pink skin that's easy to peel.

Also called "banana shallots," the tender bulbs mature early and taste slightly citrusy and sweet, having a high sugar content perfect for caramelizing and enhancing its flavor. They have a long storage potential.

Growing shallots is easy but consider growing with potted mint to deter onion flies.

Plants can also be started indoors and planted outdoors after the risk of frost has passed. If you plan to start your seeds indoors, be sure to check out our Bio Dome Seed Starter Kit. With the Bio Dome, you can control the temperature, light, and soil mix to ensure your seeds become strong for transplant.
