Shallots

Seasonality

Varieties

CSA bounty

Varieties we grow and love:

Conservor – a pink tinged white shallot, beautifully pungent

Storage

As always, fresh produce is most delicious and nutritious when consumed as close to the harvest date as possible.

Shallots will store all winter in a cool dry place. They, like their cousins, will start to sprout greens after a while, so check them frequently and use them up  if they sprout.
