Long-day Type--(Cuisse de Poulet du Poitou) Gorgeous heirloom French eschalion or “banana” type shallot yields plump, long, torpedo-shaped bulbs. Bulbs are brown tinged with pink. The flesh is very mild and sweet, and large yields may be had starting the first year from an early planting. Excellent keeping quality makes these gourmet shallots useful over a very long season!.

What are the pros? Very tasty, High Germination,

What are the cons? long wait for bulbs

Review:

When you plant ANY onion make sure you give the seed at least 2 square inches all the way around because the roots shoot out fast and crowded onions are scragely! surface plant seeds in pure peat from broken up moist jiffy pelets at least 5 inches deep of peat for highest germination then wait 3-4 weeks to transplant into soil. keep the onion sprout TRIMMED DOWN CONSTANTLY TO JUST 3 INCHES!!!! This forces the plant to convert the energy into making a bulb root instad of a long stringy shoot. Animals in the wild act like a lawnmower grazing them down. Gardeners have to substitute that with trimming. Transplant as much of the clod of peat as you can and don't break the root! Onions need loose well drained moist soil. sprinkle with fertile dirt an inch up the shoot when you transplant. Give the new transplant 4 square inches. When the onions begin to look mature, hold back on watering and keep the soil BARELY MOIST!! or the bulb can split or rot! Be patient, onions take a long time.

What are the pros? Last forever in storage

What are the cons? Small tho good

Review:

Grew these last summer from seed. Got excellent germination. Once in the garden, I kept waiting, hoping they'd size up just a little. They didn't but I harvested them and tucked them into the bottom drawer of the fridge. Was just clearing out that drawer (of turnips past their prime, withered green onions, etc), and there they are, just as perfect as the day I harvested them. If you want a small tasty onion that does well in storage, this is one.

What are the pros? Very tasty, uniform bulbs

What are the cons? Did not have good germination

Review:

Low germination may have been my fault. Forgot I had planted these with my red onions. Was very disappointed at the "skinny scraggly ones" until I pulled the at the end of summer and remembered what they were. Large bulbs for being spring seed starts.
