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!

Here is a link that might be useful: Grey Shallots from SESE
