Rated 4 out of 5 by from Holland Red Shallots I bought these two months ago- they were shipped quickly. I have harvested them. They are a bit smaller than I hoped for but the flavor is excellent .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They all died They sprouted really well and then went belly up. It was probably my fault though for not watering them enough. I wish I had been encouraged to plant them in the fall because I now know that's a better time to do so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Milder Garlic & Sweet Onion Taste!! I have grown these shallots along with sweet onions and the early italian garlic for a few years now. It performs well in 10" deep well drained soil of composted manure, top soil, a bit of play sand, bone meal, blood meal and a 10-10-10 slow release fertilizer. The shoots catch on fast and take about 4 to 6 months to come to harvest. The flavor is a cross between a sweet onion like a georgia granex or texas sweet, mixed with a very mild back note of garlic. This is one that people who don't like strong onion or garlic taste in their cooking will love. I always have plenty every year to use for various dishes.
