The shallot is in the onion family, and is typically a botanical variety or cultivar group of the species Allium cepa. This was formerly classified as a separate species, A. ascalonicum, a name now considered a synonym of the currently accepted name.Its close relatives include onion, garlic, leeks, chives and Chinese onion. Shallots probably originated in Central or Southwest Asia, travelling from there to India and the eastern Mediterranean.
