Reviews

Great customer service!

I recently purchased a lb. each of red shallots, Music, CA Early, and Elephant Garlic. All the seeds I received were in excellent condition except for the red shallots, which, 25% of the bulbs were soft and rotten. I contacted the company quickly with pictures of the poor seed. They soon sent me an entire pound to replace the 4 oz. that were unusable. Every bulb in the replacement pack was impeccable. I'm looking forward to my harvest next season! Thank you Grow Organic!

Grew well in Portland, OR!

I have grown these the past 2 years with good success planting them in the fall, which is why I was surprised by Lyn's disappointing review...I will suggest that 2015 was an unusual gardening year. I would encourage her to give it another try!

Very tasty and easy to grow

Grew these for the first time this year and they all did well and multiplied. When cooked these are so tasty and sweet. Superior to onions!

Red Shallots

I live in the Northwest. In the past I have always bought shallots sold in the Spring for Spring planting as my experience with fall planted shallots has always resulted in them sending up seed stalks in the spring, but my source discontinued them. I was forced to purchase this Shallot seed in the fall. I planted half in the fall and held the other half back and stored them for the winter. I should have known but every Fall planted shallot threw seed. My wintered over bulbs I planted in the Spring did great. I will never plant Shallorts in the Fall again. I have finally learned my lesson. I just kept hoping, but no. Fall planting does not work out for me. I just wish there were sources for Spring planted Shallots in the Spring without me having to winter them over.

Nice mild flavor

These are a nice alternative to red onions, with a milder flavor. They didn't store too well, though -- gotta use them fast!

Just harvested some from a self watering container and they are HUGE!

Wonderful shallots!

I planted these in the winter and am harvesting them now! They are delicious! Each single shallot that I planted has grown to 5 or 6! They were very easy to grow and I will grow them again next year for sure.

French Red Shallots

The shallots were great quality and we got quite a few bulbs in a pound. We're already seeing growth!
