Shallot Red Sun sets produce one of the best red-skinned varieties. It produces bumper crops of crisp, white fleshed bulbs with a really good flavour for cooking, salads or pickling. Good storage variety.

Key Features

  • Prefers full sun

Pack Contents: Approx. 20 Shallot Sets

Description

  • 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.
