Allium spp. 

This is what comes to mind when you think of a classic shallot. Delicious, mild flavor, you can use in many recipes. Approximately 5 heads per lb., 3-4 cloves per head. Before planting the shallot set, prepare the garden as you would for onions or garlic by creating a well-draining raised bed amended with compost. Plant the shallot sets in full sun, and in soil with a neutral pH. Like garlic, each shallot planted yields a new cluster of shallots. The young shoots of the shallot sets can be harvested as green onions when they are ¼ inch in diameter, or when the tops naturally die back and brown, for more mature shallots. If you decide to wait, reduce the watering schedule a few weeks prior to allow the bulb to form a protective skin.

Companions: leeks, lettuce, parsnips, spinach, beets, carrots, tomatoes. Antagonists: none known.
