About 10 days ago I planted in this Water Wise Container Garden a small bag of shallots from China that I bought at DoBond Market here in south Tampa. Normal shallot bulbs are taller than they are wide...."Potato Onions" are a replicating subspecies of shallots that are flattened globes wider than they are tall, which is why I got excited when I saw them and bought the bag. I ate one raw...wonderful in-your-face onion flavor. If by early summer each bulb has replicated into several followed by the tops dying back, signalling harvest time, I will have scored my first "red" potato onions!
