Here at Parrish Farms, we grow vegetative shallots and seed-grown shallots.
Appearance: Vegetative Shallots vs. Shallots Grown from Seed
Vegetative Shallots: When you introduce a shallot bulb into the soil, it undergoes division, forming a cluster comprising several bulbs. Due to this clustered growth pattern, shallots propagated vegetatively tend to exhibit a more irregular shape. The precise shape can vary depending on the specific variety and the conditions in which they are cultivated.
Shallots Grown from Seed: These shallots typically possess a more consistent and uniform appearance. They may resemble a small, elongated onion or take on a rounder shape, with the variation primarily dictated by the specific shallot variety. As they do not originate from an existing bulb, they do not tend to cluster in the same manner as shallots propagated through vegetative means.
About Parrish Farms
Parrish Farms is a family run farm in the beautiful Bedfordshire countryside. Our farm has been managed by three generations of Parrish families for nearly 100 years, dating all the way back to 1927.
The rich sandy soils of the Greensand Ridge are ideal for onion and shallot growing and we have been growing onions for 30 years on these pastures. We are passionate about supplying great tasting onions and shallots in the most sustainable way and take great care of the land that we farm on.
All of our fields are ringed by strips of uncultivated land, which are rich in wild flora and fauna, and encourage biodiversity. We use our own reservoir for irrigating our crops and renewable energy is used to help run our onions stores, with over 400kw of solar panels installed over the farm.
We are constantly evolving our farming practices so that we operate in the most sustainable way, making sure to protect our local wildlife as well as to preserve the quality of the soil that our crops are grown on.
