    • 110 Days From Transplant
    • Produces Single Teardrop Shaped Shallots
    • Long Storage When Well Cured
  • TRANSPLANT INFORMATION: Our onion transplants are dormant when shipped. It is normal for them to be pale & slightly dry due to dormancy & shipping. In fact, onions are very hardy & can live off of the bulb for approximately three weeks. Generally, we recommend planting within one week. These healthy transplants will thrive if well cared for. For your gardening success, we have switched from selling potted onion plants to onion transplants.
  • SHIPPING INFORMATION: We ship all dormant transplants beginning in early April. Our shallots are well-adapted for mid-northern states. If your region requires earlier planting, consider our Certified Organic Red Shallot Sets or you may want to source your shallot transplants from a local nursery. For more information, see our Keene Garlic Seasonal Order Shipping Guide.

Basic Shallot Growing Info

Sun Requirement: Shallots require full sun – the more the better! Therefore, avoid planting next to crops that might shade your shallots.
Soil Fertility: Shallots prefer soil with a pH between 6.2 and 6.8. If your soil is too acidic, add ground limestone; if it is too alkaline, add peat moss. Adding compost or a balanced organic fertilizer is essential for growing healthy onions, especially if your soil fertility is low. For the best growth and yield, shallots need fertilizer at planting time and additional side dressing.
Planting: Shallots grow best on raised beds or raised rows at least 4″ high. Plant your shallots up to 4 to 6 weeks before the last estimated spring frost.
