One of the best golden brown skinned shallots to grow with its RHS Award of Garden Merit. Its flavour is more delicate that an onion which is why shallots are becoming very popular again. Shallots sets differ from onion sets in that each set (bulb) will split into 5-6 shallots whilst growing as for an onion each set is an onion.
Choose a full sun location in moist but free draining soil. Prepare the soil adding fertiliser before planting and position the bulbs just deep enough so that the soil covers the bulbs so that they are pointy end up just below the soil surface. Harvest once the leaves bend over in and begin to turn yellow in July - August.
Golden Gourmet will store well in a cool ventilated shed.
Each pack of 10 shallots will give you a crop of approx 50 shallots for pickling or eating
