Description and Cultivation

What are shallots?



They appear in clusters of offsets with a head composed of multiple cloves. Its colour varies from golden brown to rose red, the type found in Kerala is rose red. Some are elongated and some round in shape. I have always seen the round variety in Kerala commonly confused with green onions and spring onions. Eschalots, French shallots and golden shallots are other names used in different parts of the world.
