Shallot 'Jermor' (Autumn Planting)

Allium cepa (Aggregatum Group)

Hardy Bulb

 Customer Rating

Autumn planting.

Shallot 'Jermor' is from French production of Jersey 'half long' types with long, rather than rounded bulbs that are often referred to as 'banana' shallots. The shiny copper-skinned bulbs with crisp, pink-tinged flesh make this a favourite with exhibitors. This RHS AGM variety is equally popular in the kitchen for its superb sweet taste. An excellent variety for autumn planting with good storage potential. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 15cm (6").

Plant shallots in rows in any firm, well drained soil in full sun. Prepare the planting area several weeks in advance by incorporating some well rotted garden compost to improve drainage and soil fertility. Avoid planting shallots on freshly manured soil. On particularly wet ground, try growing shallots in raised beds. When growing shallots from sets, plant the bulbs so that the tip of bulb is just protruding through the soil surface. Leave a space of 18cm (7") between each bulb, and 30cm (12") between each row.
Shallots are undemanding and require only occasional watering during particularly dry periods. However, rows should be weeded regularly. Harvest Autumn planted shallots in late June, a week or two after the leaves begin to turn yellow. Choose a dry day to loosen them from the ground with a fork. Leave them in their clumps on the soil surface for a day or two until they have fully dried in the sun. Once dry, remove the top foliage and store them in a well ventilated, dry position. There is no need to break rings of shallots apart until you need to use them. Shallots store exceptionally well and can often be stored in good condition for 6 months or more.

    By Ellen Kunec 14-10-2012

    This is the 1st year that T&M have sold this excellent overwinter shallot. My pack weighed 400g and contained 28 solid bulbs (and one soft one) so good value. Would buy these here again.
