Description

The shallot is in the onion family, and is typically a botanical variety or cultivar group of the species Allium cepa.[1] This was formerly classified as a separate species, A. ascalonicum, a name now considered a synonym of the currently accepted name.[2]

Its close relatives include oniongarlicleekschives[3] and Chinese onion.[4] Shallots probably originated in Central or Southwest Asia, travelling from there to India and the eastern Mediterranean.
