Ed’s Red comes from the breeding work of farmer/breeder Beth Rasgorshek of Nampa, Idaho. These shallots grow in a single season from seed, not from bulbs as other shallots are commonly grown. They get relatively large, have beautiful crimson skins and store all winter long and into the spring.


~150 seeds per packet

  • Why choose locally grown, regionally adapted seeds?

    ✿ Our seeds are intentionally bred to maximize resilience, be resistant to pests and diseases, produce vigorously, and taste delicious.

    ✿ That means our seeds come from plants grown right here and have started the process of acclimating to this region, which makes them easier to grow.

    ✿ We aim to work our land in a way that honors our human and more-than-human kin in the water, soil, and air.
