Banana Shallot – All About

Shallots are a type of onion-like vegetable, similar in taste and texture to garlic. One particular variety of shallot is the banana shallot, which is widely available and has a sweet flavor. Here’s what you need to know about banana shallot, from what it looks like to how you can prepare and store it.

What Does Banana Shallot Look Like?

Banana shallot looks somewhat like an elongated scallion or green onion, but with a bulb on the end. The bulbs usually range in color from white to yellow and brown, while the leaves are a bright shade of green. It is much larger than regular shallots, typically growing up to 6 inches in length.

How Do You Prepare and Cook?

Banana shallot is versatile enough to be used in many dishes, both savory and sweet. It can be eaten raw or cooked; when cooking with banana shallots, they should be peeled before use. A few ways you can use them include chopping them into slices for salads or sautéing them as part of an Asian-style stir-fry dish. Banana shallots are also wonderful when caramelized with butter or olive oil—simply cook over medium heat until golden brown.

How Do You Store?

Banana shallots stored unwashed at room temperature away from direct sunlight for up to two weeks or kept in the fridge for longer storage time. If you find that your banana shallots are starting to dry out, simply soak them in cold water overnight before using them again.


A mild yet sweet flavor that makes them ideal for adding depth and dimension to almost any dish. From salads to stir-fries and stews! They’re easy to prepare and store too—so why not give this versatile vegetable a try next time you’re looking for something new!
