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!.

Review:

I've grown these for two years and love their flavor. They give especially good shallot flavor in dishes that are cooked over longer time. We much prefer to cook with them over onions and they store wonderfully. They peel nicely too. All of them I've grown, however are shaped like onions and I can't find any information why. Shapes are pretty uniform, but sizes vary. That's probably my doing. I'll keep growing them, though.

Review:

I've been growing these for several years with mixed results. The failures were mostly mine as a grower in the first couple years. I grew zebrunes along with a hybrid shallot from an organic seed company.Our zebrunes out performed the hybrid in every way. All shallots were irrigated and fertilized throughout the growing season. My customers couldn't believe how big our zebrune shallots were this fall and absolutely loved them.

Nice taste but not a shallot

What are the pros? Nice taste

What are the cons? Not a 'shallot'

Review:

While this is a tasty onion, it did not produce a bulb that looks like the photo above. My bulbs looked like typical onions: round, slightly flatted horizontally (like a UFO), rather than banana shaped as above. They are a light purpley-red on the outside. I grew them in fluffy loam, so soil compaction or rocks would not be the reason. I'm on the fence if I'd bother planting these again as I wanted them to be a shallot (and OP shallots are difficult to find...).

What are the pros? Good onion

What are the cons? Not like a shallot

Review:

The onions that grew out were not elongated like a shallot at all and just looked like a regular onions. Maybe because of the drought conditions that we had this growing season although I was watering. Other than that the onions are good.

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.
