(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? Good flavor

What are the cons? Did not mature to full size

Review:

I grew these last summer, and the greens on them died before the bulbs matured to full size. Like others have noted, the bulbs were round, not the shape of normal shallots. Mine were very small at the time they stopped growing, but they had good flavor.

Review:

My Zebrune shallots are round oniony shaped, just as many other reviewers have stated. Good flavor, but I'm looking for an OP shallot (with the shallot's great keeping qualities). Since these don't match the description, I'm wondering just what I grew. Baker Creek, any comments? I will save seeds and see what the next generation brings.

Review:

I bought these and forgot about them until mid summer. I figured we would get a warm fall so I started some indoors then put them in my strawberry raised bed a few weeks later. Well fall wasn't as long or warm as I hoped but I still got a nice small harvest. They were long and pretty and the taste was delicious. The small harvest didn't last long! I'm looking forward to a bigger more mature crop this year.

Review:

Like others writing reviews here, the shallots I grew looked nothing like the zebrune shallot shown above. They were round and squat, like an onion. Every one of them. They do have the pink skin with purpley insides, however, and taste like shallots. While they were not what I was expecting, I enjoyed growing and eating them. I'm growing out the seed this spring to see if the roundy-ness continues in the next generation (wondering if there was a cross, or if my conditions caused the shape change)
