The shallot is a small onion of the Multiplier type. Its bulbs
have a more delicate flavor than most onions. Its growth
requirements are about the same as those of most other onions.
Shallots seldom form seed and are propagated by means of the
small cloves or divisions, into which the plant splits during
growth. The plant is hardy and may be left in the ground from year
to year, but best results are had by lifting the clusters of bulbs
at the end of the growing season and replanting the smaller ones
at the desired time.
