Shallots, Dutch Red (Organic, Pre-order ships fall 2022)
*Pre-order, ships fall 2022
Easy kitchen processing
Easy to grow, space efficient plant
Dutch red shallots fall somewhere between onions and garlic in both texture and flavor, with a touch of that pungent shallot flavor. Easier to peel and larger than French Grey, Dutch Red is not a “true” shallot- but its close enough!
How to grow it:
Plant individual cloves in fall, Sept-Oct, root side down, about 2 inches deep. Cover with straw mulch to help protect cloves from deep freezes. Harvest when leaves begin to dry down, around mid-July. Hang to let cure for 2-4 weeks in a covered location.
