In shallot (Allium cepa var. ascalonicum Backer) 13 characteristics were described on 89 clones: foliage colour, foliage attitude, leaf diameter, degree of leaf waxiness, height growth, plant growth habit, shape of mature dry bulbs, population uniformity of bulb shape, bulb skin colour, average number of bulbs per cluster, retaining common tunica scales, ability to produce scape and widened scape on the clones of shallot. The interrelations between the characteristics were studied. The interrelations between plant vigour - foliage attitude, plant vigour - leaf diameter, height growth - foliage attitude and leaf diameter - foliage attitude were statistically positively significant.
