This striking purple-striped hardneck variety is excellent for northern climates. Although the exact variety of this heirloom is unknown, don’t let it’s smaller size fool you! It produces strong, flavourful cloves that have been passed down in my family for decades. Bulbs are packed with 8-12 small to medium sized cloves that store very well. Scapes can also be harvested for cooking. Bulb size: 1.5-2"
1 Bulb (8-12 small to medium sized cloves, approx 25g)
Direct sow in the garden during the fall. Daytime temperatures should be consistently below 10˚C before planting (No earlier than Canadian Thanksgiving). Separate cloves from bulb and plant individual cloves approx. 4-6" apart, 2" deep, with root side facing down, and pointy part up. Cloves sprout in early spring.
