Our Feedback
A really excellent website--full of interesting information and those fruit varieties which are so hard to source. Perhaps you could find time to list varieties which prosper in the moister west of the country? R. Ramsey. Dorset

One of the best varieties of Shallot to grow from seed, Matador consistently produces heavy crops of quality bulbs. The thick reddish brown skin protects the pure white flesh beneath - which is gorgeously crisp and richly flavoured.

Stores very well - and can keep right through to Spring of the following year.

  • Sow March to early May (not before) in seed trays or module trays under protection.
  • Provide a minimum germination temperature of 50°F (10°C), but ideally closer to 60°F (16°C).
  • Set out when large enough to handle 8" (20 cm) apart in rows 8" (20 cm).
  • Top Tips
  • Avoid planting out after the first week in June as bulbs will not mature properly from such late plantings.
  • Keep weed free at all times.
  • Avoid over-watering, but water thoroughly in warm dry spells.
