Shallot cultivation in South Sulawesi has been using local tubers as seeds. The continuous use of tubers as seed can cause a decrease in production. One effort to overcome this problem is by using botanical seeds (true shallot seed/TSS). The research aims to shallot varieties that are capable of producing botanical seeds (TSS) above 1 g per clump. The research was conducted in Loka Village, Rumbia District, Jeneponto Regency from March to September 2015. The experiment was arranged in a randomized block design with four treatments varieties, and three replications. The results showed that the varieties that produce the most seeds were Trisula and Pancasona weighing 4.90 g and 4.18 g per clump respectively, with the percentage of flowering plants 93% and 90% respectively. In contrast to the Maja Cipanas and Mentes varieties which produced seeds of 1.85 g and 1.49 g respectively, but the percentage of plants flowering in the Maja Cipanas variety only 60% and the Mentes variety was 30%. Two shallot varieties namely Trisula and Pancasona can be recommended as producers of shallot TSS seeds in the dry highlands of South Sulawesi. R/C ratio analysis of shallot farming in producing TSS was 1.3, which means that TSS seed production is worth to effort.
