Back in the 90s I grew a shallot from seed called Atlas. That was when we were living in Hidalgo, Mexico; and I needed to find a shallot which would bulb up at the 20th parallel (far South).
I'd like to find this shallot again, whether in bulb or seed. But I haven' been able to locate any on-line. Anyone here know of a company which carries it?
Here in Tahlequah, OK; I've struggled with my potato onions and shallots. The shallots I've tried don't bulb very well. My potato onions make good bulbs, but if I don't get them dug and stored inside by mid-July nearly half of them cook in the ground and die. I was thinking that Atlas might do better.
