    Often regarded as the best red-skinned variety it produces bumper yields of crisp white fleshed bulbs that have a really good flavour. It is perfect for cooking pickling or eating raw in salads or for pickling. They store quite well too! Sets are the easiest way to grow shallots in the garden. Planted very early in the season in mid-February if possible they mature faster than those grown from seed.

  • Garden care: Plant onion sets from mid-February to March 15cm (6in) apart in rows 30cm (12in) apart. Lift the onions when they are mature and allow them to dry before using.
