Crème Brûlée (BGS270) Hybrid Shallot
This is the first-ever All America winning echalion shallot. It has a beautiful copper-pink outer skin, and an even more attractive rosy-purple inner skin. French chefs love this type of shallot because they are easy to peel, have more interesting flavors, and caramelize easily when heated. Perfect to plant in the garden, or sell at a farmers market. Plants reach 24 to 30 inches, and the bulb is 4-5 inches in length. Can be grown in a container as well. Space 3 to 4 inches apart. Transplant in March, or direct seed in April or May. 90 to 100 days.
