Allium cepa Shallots are day-length sensitive—to produce large bulbs, plant in spring as soon as soil is workable. Shallow rooted, they require rich weed-free soil and consistent water.
Plant shallots 4" apart in rows 1' apart. During the season, pull any plants that begin to bolt and use them as scallions.
It’s a good idea to sidedress once or twice a season, especially close to solstice.
Clean and grade before storage.
Ideal storage conditions are temperatures at 32° with humidity of 60–70%. If you can’t do that, work to get a total number of 100. For example, at temperatures from 50–55°, humidity should be 45–50%.
Approx. 15 shallot bulbs per pound.
