This well known French heirloom shallot is sometimes referred to as an eschalion, or banana shallot. The eschalion combines the ease and texture of an onion with the delicate gourmet flavour of a shallot. The long lasting bulbs have pinkish brown skins over crisp white interiors. The flesh is sweet and mild for gourmet cooking. The sweetness improves in storage, so they keep getting better. Zebrune shallot seeds were once known as Cuisse de Poulet or 'chicken legs' due to their stretched, oblong shape and wide equator. Start the seeds indoors early in the year and transplant in early spring.

Difficulty

Scallions are easy to grow. Bulbing onions and shallots require transplanting in the spring and curing after harvest. By following these instructions, even novice gardeners should have no trouble.

Timing

Start shallots and storage onions indoors in late winter and early spring, and transplant 2-4 weeks after the last frost date. Overwintering onions need to be started in early summer, and transplanted by the middle of August. Scallions can be direct sown every 3 weeks from two weeks after the last frost date to late summer. Optimal soil temperature for germination: 21-25°C (70-75°F). Seeds will emerge in 6-12 days, depending on conditions.
