Shallots Golden Garnet is a tasty and versatile variety of shallots, prized for their unique flavor and tender texture. This variety produces small, elongated bulbs with a rich, golden-brown skin and a crisp, firm flesh that is perfect for use in a wide range of dishes.
Best positioned in a sunny spot with well-drained soil, Shallots Golden Garnet should be planted in early spring to ensure a good crop. They can be planted in rows or in clusters, with each bulb planted around 10cm apart.
Fruiting time for Golden Garnet shallots is typically around 100-120 days after planting, depending on the weather conditions and care taken. These shallots grow to a height of around 20-25cm and have a spread of 15-20cm.
To encourage strong growth and good fruiting, it’s important to feed Golden Garnet shallots regularly with a balanced fertilizer, especially during the early stages of growth. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged, and avoid letting the bulbs become too dry.
Harvesting should be done when the tops start to turn yellow and dry out, usually around late summer or early autumn. The bulbs can then be lifted, cleaned and dried, ready for use in the kitchen.
