Is it an onion - is it a shallot? Well, technically Zebrune is an onion, but it has the milder, sweeter taste we associate with shallots. Often called ‘banana’ shallots in the cookbooks, this type is currently much in favour with TV chefs. Zebrune produces a good yield of ‘easy to slice’ bulbs.

Crops from 24 weeks after sowing. For the best crops, dig and manure the soil in autumn or early winter, applying a light dressing of lime early in February and a week before sowings. Sow in grooves 1.25cm (½”) deep, 23cm (9”) apart. Thin plants out finally to 15cm (6”) apart. For exhibition onions, sow under glass December-January, transplant seedlings into boxes or pots and harden off for planting out in April. Row length per pack: 6m (20’) unless otherwise stated. ‘Triple pack’ row length: 18m (60’).
