Shallot – Zebrune (Organic)£2.80 Add to basket
Shallot – Zebrune (Organic)
A French heritage shallot of mild and sweet taste. With their elongated bulbs and their creamy brown colour tinged with a deep pink, this shallot looks as elegant as it tastes. It has an ivory white coloured flesh that is crisp and tightly layered.
Zebrune is classed as a ‘banana shallot’ which is essentially a cross between an onion and a shallot. It inherited the best qualities from both sides. They are larger than the regular shallot and therefore easier to handle but so mild and fragrant in taste that is far superior to any onion.
We loved every stage of growing this one, it’s a very pleasing crop and adds a French finesse and aroma to any meal.
