Expert Tip

Golden Gourmet Shallots: Planting and Care Guide

Planting Time: Plant Golden Gourmet Shallot sets in the fall, approximately 4-6 weeks before the first hard frost. Ensure the soil provides good drainage for optimal growth.

Bulb Characteristics: Golden Gourmet Shallots yield bulbs with a golden hue and a mild, yet distinctive, flavour, adding a gourmet touch to your culinary creations.

Growing Season: Shallots generally have a prolonged growing season, with harvesting typically occurring in mid to late summer, around 8-10 months after planting.

Soil: Golden Gourmet Shallots thrive in well-draining, fertile soil. Ensure the soil is loose and enriched with organic matter for optimal bulb development.

Sunlight Requirements: Plant in a location that receives full sun exposure for a minimum of 6-8 hours daily to promote healthy growth and bulb formation.

Watering: Provide consistent moisture to the shallots, especially during dry periods. Water deeply, avoiding waterlogged conditions that may harm bulb development.

Fertilization: Apply a balanced fertilizer during early spring when shallots are actively growing. Steer clear of high-nitrogen fertilizers to prioritize bulb development over excessive leafy growth.

Mulching: Mulch around the shallot plants to retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature throughout the growing season.

Scapes: Keep an eye out for scapes (flowering stems) on Golden Gourmet Shallots. Some gardeners choose to remove scapes to direct energy towards bulb development.

Harvesting: Harvest shallots when the lower leaves begin to yellow and wither. Gently dig up the bulbs and allow them to cure in a dry, well-ventilated area for a few weeks.

Storage: After curing, store Golden Gourmet Shallots in a cool, dry place with good air circulation. Braiding them is a space-efficient and traditional storage method.

Companion Planting: Leverage the insect-repelling properties of shallots by planting Golden Gourmet Shallots near other crops to help deter pests.

Expert Tip: Reserve some of the largest shallot bulbs from your harvest for planting in the subsequent growing season. This practice ensures continuity and adaptation to your specific growing conditions.
