Product Overview

Allium cepa

What a delight, French shallots fresh from the garden! Impressive size, too. Also called "chicken leg" shallot.

Savor the sweet, mild flavor of this large, easy-to-peel eschalion (banana) type shallot. Very popular with chefs, it is technically a cross between a shallot and an onion. Called Cuisse de Poulet du Poitou (leg of the chicken) in France because it resembles a chicken leg. Enjoy in any dish that calls for onions or shallots. Its lighter flavor delicately enhances fresh preparations, too, like vinaigrettes. Resists bolting, producing well even in warm climates. Recipe inside for shallot vinaigrette.

Variety Info

Thick, 2"–6" long, torpedo-shaped bulbs with a copper-colored wrapper and cream-colored interior. 'Zebrune' is also called Cuisse de Poulet de Poitou.
