Number of seeds per packet: 3.
Grow long, banana-shaped shallots from seed, as used by many celebrity chefs. Banana Shallot produces attractive, shiny, copper brown-skinned bulbs with crisp white flesh and a very distinct flavour. Sowing densities will determine the size of bulbs you harvest. Stores well for winter use in the kitchen.
Sow March to May. Sow seeds thinly, ideally in broad drills/channels similarly as spring onions, 13mm deep in drills/channels 30cm apart. Thin seedlings if necessary, larger bulbs will form if given 4cm spacings.
Harvest July and August.
