Probably the earliest of all shallots, this Dutch red variety produces a heavy crop of smaller bulbs that have an intense, almost spicy, flavour.

It is not unusual for this variety to be ready for harvesting in July - yet it will often keep firm and well until the following May.

Couple this with an excellent resistance to bolting and it is easy to understand why this is such a popular variety.

  • Set out 6-8" (15-20 cm) apart in rows 8" (20 cm).
  • Take out a drill approximately 1" (2.5 cm) deep and push into the bottom of the drill (pointed side up) before covering with soil, leaving the tops just showing.
  • Alternatively take out shallow holes with a dibber and pop in - again leaving the tops just showing.
  • Top Tips
  • Recently planted sets may need to be protected with netting or similar to prevent birds pulling them out of the soil.
  • Keep weed free at all times.
  • Avoid over-watering, but water thoroughly in warm dry spells.
