Growing and varieties of shallots

Shallot is a variety similar to onions, but forming a lot of “onions” from onions. In another way it is also called “shrubbery”, “shrew”, “family onion”. The plant is perennial, but quickly loses its yield, because it is advised to transplant it annually, and once every 3 years to grow again from seeds. The shallots have more useful properties than ordinary onions. It is widely used in cooking, especially in French cuisine.
