True Shallot Bulbs... Where???

HerrGothicSeptember 6, 2012

Does anyone have true french shallots???

I would like to plant some in my garden this year, and would like to avoid the seed'ed varities I am seeing in all the seed retailers online. I looked into a French seed company and found certified Shallot bulbs but these can't be shipped to the US (think politics). Does anyone have any or know a place to get them?

I have seen the small gray traditional shallots, but I am also looking for the larger ones you see at French markets.

They sell them at Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, but get your order in soon or they may sell out!
