Golden Gourmet Shallot Sets are an excellent choice for pickling. With high yield and golden brown skin, this Dutch variety can be planted early in the season too.
Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.
Prior to planting, prepare the ground well by removing weeds and digging over the site with a garden fork to break up the soil for ease of planting.
We recommend planting Shallots, such as Golden Gourmet, between March and April into soil 3cm deep and 12cm apart in a line. Leave at least 30cm between lines to allow growing space.
Add a general fertiliser during the growing season and ensure the crop is watered well throughout.
In late Summer or early Autumn, the leaves will turn yellow and die back ready for harvest. First bend the leaves to one side, lift the plant to the surface and allow the Shallots ripen on top. Once dry, remove loose skins and roots and store in a cool, dry place.
