Prized by French gourmet chefs, these small, teardrop-shaped (1 x 1½ in.) bulbs have a hard, grey skin and tender, pinkish-white flesh. They have a distinctive, rich, earthy smell, and mild, delicious flavor.

Shallots are widely used not only in French, Indian, and Thai food, but also Central Asian cooking, where they reportedly grow wild. These shallots have a hard skin that can be difficult to peel, but underneath their rough exterior lies a heart of gold; I almost think that cliché was first used to describe the French Grey Shallot (even though the “heart” is white and purple). French Grey Shallots are a true shallot, meaning they are only propagated vegetatively and never form true seed.
