One of the most important species of medicinal and industrial shallot Iran. Those in the as normal and in elevated areas with very cold climate to semi grow cold. Shallot (Allium altissimum) and Persian shallot (Allium hirtifolium), are represented important species in Iran. To investigate the possibility of domestication and cultivation of these two native cultivars, an experiment with three Bulb sizes (small, medium and large) and two species of mossir (Aligoodarz and Kalat) and inflorescence removing with three replications was conducted in horticulture department of Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. The results showed that the percentage of Bulblet, was affected by treatments. Bulb lowest percentage of Bulblet (24.7 percent) and most of the mass production of shallot Kalat Bulblet (40.4 percent) was related to the Aligoodarz mooseer specie. Largest Bulb size (80.2 gr) and highest Allicin content (4.24 µg/mg) was observed in large size Bulbs of Aligoodarz native species. Stem flower removal showed no significant difference within Bulb weight, but it affected Bulb size and Allicin content significantly.
