The Banana Shallot (also known as an Echalion) is a cross between a regular shallot & an onion. Inheriting the best qualities of each, the Banana Shallot has both the larger size of the onion (though elongated in shape) as well as the mildness & sweetness of the shallot. They do have a lower water content, which requires them to be cooked more gently than regular onions
