French Grey Shallots (aka Griselle) are considered true shallots, as they can only be propagated from bulbs. These sought after delights are said to have a more refined flavor than those grown from seed. Chefs prize them for their delicious umami flavor. Their flesh is delicately pink-purple and size ranges from 1-2".
Grey shallots are hardy in ground in heavy freezes. They do not store as well as Dutch Red Shallots (about 3-5 months). ~35 cloves per pound.
A pound of this variety will give you 35-45 plantable cloves of shallots, enough to plant a 25-foot row or 10 feet of a 3-foot-wide garden bed. They will yield 6 to 10 times what was originally planted.
