Shallot 'Hative de Niort' (Autumn Planting)

Allium cepa (Aggregatum Group)

Autumn planting.

Shallot Hative de Niort is the exhibitors favourite but also has superb taste for a wide range of culinary dishes. The brown skinned bulbs have that classic elongated pear shape with excellent uniformity.

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.

An excellent variety for autumn planting with good storage potential. Height: 35cm (14"). Spread: 15cm (6").
