This variety of Russian Red comes from the Purple Stripe family of Garlic. It is an Eastern European treasure that is fiery with a mellow and smooth aftertaste. It has heat when eaten raw and a wonderfully rich, complex garlicky flavour when cooked.
Russian Red is high yielding when grown in rich soils with adequate moisture. It thrives in Canada's cold climate and explodes out of the ground in spring. Generally tolerates wet soil conditions fairly well. As with other Purple Stripes, its plants are medium-sized with slender leaves.
Has large bulbs with 8 to 12 cloves of medium size. Bulb wrappers range from having slight pinkish and purple tones to strong purple stripes depending on local growing conditions.
Bulb wrappers are fairly tight which makes for good storage. Keeps for 6 to 8 months.
Our premium garlic is carefully examined throughout the season, from planting to harvest. Cloves, plants and bulbs are all rogued regularly to maintain the highest quality seed stock! We grow 100% of the garlic we sell to ensure standards always remain high.
