Adorned with prettily patterned, easy-to-peel coppery-red skins, the 'Davidor' shallot reveals cream-colored flesh and striking lilac interior rings upon slicing. This variety is not only a delight for the eyes but also a pleasure to prepare. Exceptionally adaptable, 'Davidor' thrives in a variety of growing conditions, making it a reliable choice for gardeners seeking an early-producing, intermediate-day type shallot. Whether you are a gourmet home cook or a professional chef, adding 'Davidor' to your garden will elevate your culinary creations with its exquisite flavor and beautiful presentation.

As soon as the soil is workable in early spring, sow shallot seeds in a 2" wide band, planting about 2 seeds per inch at a depth of 1/4–1/2", with rows spaced 12–18" apart. For higher yields, thin seedlings to 2" apart in fertile soil. For larger shallots, thin to 3–4" apart.
