Red Sun Shallot Sets
Bulb size 10-12cm - 12 bulbs in bag
Often regarded as the best red-skinned variety, it produces bumper yields of crisp, white fleshed bulbs that have a really good flavour. It is perfect for cooking, pickling, or eating raw in salads or for pickling. They store quite well too! Sets are the easiest way to grow shallots in the garden, and will mature faster than those grown from seed. Plant very early in the season, in mid-February if possible, in a sunny position. Allow shallots room to splay out and produce clusters of bulbs.
