Shallot Sets – Golden Gourmet have golden brown skins, pale flesh with a wonderful flavour and store well into winter.

Golden Gourmet are easy to grow and an improved strain of the traditional variety Giant Yellow.

Planted very early in the season, in mid-February if possible, they mature faster than those grown from seed.

This variety has larger and better quality bulbs with a reduced likelihood of bolting.

Golden Gourmet is a very high-yielding, Dutch variety that can be harvested as early as July.

Superb for pickling and general cooking when extra strength is required.


Shallots are easy to grow and have a distinctive flavour that is sweeter and milder than onions, making them more suitable for use in quiches, sauces and delightful when pickled.

There are many fantastic varieties with bulbs in many shapes and sizes.

Plants are undemanding and can be grown in any well-drained, fertile soil in a sunny position.

They need a long-growing period but can be inter-planted with faster-growing crops throughout the growing season.
