Shallots are a mix between garlic and onion. They provide a delicious mild flavor with much more sugar than onions or garlic. Shallots are able to be grown in many soil conditions and many climates. They can be overwintered in the soil to harvest the following year as multiple smaller shallots similar to how garlic grows, or grown by seed and harvested first year much like an onion. Highly prized by chefs for their delicate flavor and bring top dollar at farmers markets. Start seeds indoors 4-5 weeks before your last frost date, transplant outdoors once the soil has warmed and is workable. Soil should be loose, well draining, and full of organic matter. Long-day variety.
