description for "Garlic and Shallots: Allium cepa (Aggregatum Group) 'Asian Purple'"

'Asian Purple' shallots aren't just for chefs, but are easy to grow and prolific, too. You will enjoy their distinctive flavor when used in your own cooking. Shallots are grown in a similar manner to potato onions, and you will always have a supply for eating as well as sets for planting. 'Asian Purple' is tear-drop shaped. These purple shallots are full of extra heat. Very prolific. Good, long storage ability. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman

History:

Allium cepa has been cultivated throughout such a large portion of human history, that the true species is no longer known in the wild.
