(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 have been growing these for 3 years now and they do very well in Western Mass. I start them at the end of January under a grow light and they germinate very well. Harvest mid July - Mid August. They seem to keep well. I have had them until the end of January but at that point we eat the last one so they probably would last longer. The color is beautiful and they really are quite delicious. All 3 years I have grown them they have been round. Highly recommend.

Review:

I have only grown shallots from starts until I found these seeds. I thought I would take a chance and I am so happy with the results. My whole patch of shallots was so abundant I had to thin at least 4 times. About a month after germination a broken sprinkler nearly destroyed all of my plants. To my surprise they recovered beautifully. I'm harvesting beautiful large pink shallots today.

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.

What are the pros? great germination, fast growth

What are the cons? shape? confusing!

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.
