Purple Stripe 8-12 per cloves per bulb. This gorgeous variety originated in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. The flavor is not overpowering, but mellow and garlicky with minimal aftertaste. Roasted flavor is our favorite, smooth and delicious. Cloves are more numerous than those in porcelain varieties. As with other purple stripes, the plants are shorter than porcelains and require fertile soil to grow large bulbs.
Garlic is sold on a rolling basis starting with the largest bulbs. Our seed garlic is 2" and up in size, but we do have some sized 1.75-2" you may request. Please contact us if you'd like to know what size range is currently available or have specific size requests. Keep in mind smaller bulbs yield more cloves per pound, thus more feet planted.
We begin shipping when the garlic is fully cured, usually early September.
Our hardneck garlic varieties grow well in any part of the country, but are especially suited for northern climates. They have shown to be vigorous during our cold winters and successfully emerge through a thick layer of mulch in spring.
All garlic varieties are USDA Certified Organic by Midwest Organic Services Association (MOSA).
