- Big crops of red shallots in summer
- Versatile in the kitchen
- Great for storing for autumn and winter
Take advantage of one of the best red-skinned varieties for home-growing. Red Sun produces bumper crops of crisp, white-fleshed bulbs with a really good flavour for cooking, salads or pickling.
Every shallot stores really well. We suggest that you take surplus shallots, plait them up and hang them in a cool place like a shed.
Good to plant in free-draining to medium-heavy soils if you put your sets into the ground in March or April. The soil warms up in spring which the bulbs favour well.
