ON550A - Conservor Coated Organic
CERTIFIED ORGANIC! Very appealing dark-skinned shallots with high shoulders and a round base. Direct sow Conservor Organic shallot seeds from February to March leaving no more than 8-10cm (3-4") between plants in the row. Or start some indoors under bright lights for transplanting out in late April/early May. These flavourful little shallots are not as blocky as Ambition, and if they are well cured and stored, they can store up to four to five months. Like traditional French shallots, with a bit more heat, they match beautifully with fish and egg dishes. Conservor shallot has a high percentage of large, single (un-split) bulbs.
These seeds are coated with an inert, organically certified layer which helps to minimize clumping in storage and seed sowing machines. The coating is approved by organic certifiers in Canada, the US, EU, and Japan.

How To Grow
Choose sweet onion varieties for enjoying raw or cooked within a couple of months of harvest. Storage types keep much longer, and will last until the following spring in the right conditions. All onions are photoperiodic – day length triggers bulb development. Our varieties are all “long day” types, suitable for northern US and Canada.
