Conservor Shallot Seeds Conventional & Organic

ON537

110 days. A wonderful, savory shallot that is easy to peel and superbly flavored. Elongated bulbs have coppery red skins with cream-colored flesh and lilac interior rings. Conservor is quite versatile and is just as lovely in homemade vinaigrette as it is sautéed and served over your favorite meat dish.
Also available as fall-shipped bulbs.
