The shallot is a perennial plant of the ONION family which is composed of several small bulbs growing in a cluster. It has a long green top and should not be confused with SPRING ONION .

Shallots may be used instead of onions in cooking but they have a less pungent smell and a more delicate flavour. They are also ideal for pickling and are grown commercially for this purpose.
