    It looks like Arista is an exhibition variety so I would imagine they would grow larger than your average shallot.

    Found a bit more about them...
    Semi-long with a sweet flavour and firm reddish colour flesh. Great for casseroles and stews. Bred to withstand harsh weather in northern Europe.

    Hope this helps Dal

    That's a really good price from what I have seen.
