Kevin Lundgren has developed a special line of 100% organic Shallots from a seed stock of only seven foundation plants that survived in the abondoned garden of a local German immigrant.
Shallots are a delicious combination of onions and garlic and are often mistaken for onions. In fact, shallots are actually a unique species. They grow in clusters, where separate bulbs are attached at the root base and by loose skins. The shallot is smaller than most onions and has a tapered shape and a fine-textured, coppery skin, which differentiates it from onions.
Kevin will harvest 10 acres of 2010 crop shallots. He is giving a limited supply of stock to growers for seed stock and to gormet chefs for cooking, all free upon request.
