Shallot 'Jermor' (Autumn Planting)

Allium cepa (Aggregatum Group)

 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").
