Asiatic garlic is a unique family group that tends to have a wide range of characteristics, especially when grown in Canada. They are medium to long storing and tend to store longer than Turban garlic. They have plump, short cloves that are richly flavoured, hot when eaten raw and flavourful when cooked.
In northern climates they tend to produce a scape with a long beak shaped capsule with several large to very large bulbils (although the scape stalks are often softer than other hardnecks and in some cases may not produce a stalk at all depending on growing conditions). Scape removal does not have a strong impact on bulb size. Bulbs should be harvested on the early side (one or two leaves turned brown) as the bulb wrappers deteriorate quickly when left in the ground too long.
