Shallot

The banana shallot, or echalion, is a cross between a regular shallot and an onion. It has inherited the best qualities from each side, the larger size of the onion (though it is elongated in shape - hence the name "banana shallot") and the mildness and sweetness of the shallot. Start in early winter in trays and transplant out in spring 6” apart.
