Q.How Long Can You Keep Onions/Shallots in the Ground?

Zone Mountains-central Ca. | debor added on March 17, 2013 | Answered

Planted what I thought was onions last June and they never got large or looked like onions, so I’m thinking they were shallot plants because they are small clusters of bulbs. They’ve been in my garden since I planted them, 9 months, and I’ve only used the green tops like chives. They are nice and green and there are lots of flat bulbs. Can I still use them right out of the ground like onions/shallots? Are they still good? Do they have to be dried first?

Use them. Pull, clean and use. Tthis article should answer other questions you might have about shallots: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/vegetables/shallot/tips-for-growing-shallots.htm
