Easy to grow and popular with both gardeners and cooking enthusiasts, This Italian variety is also known as "Gambino" in certain regions and is the primary garlic found in many kitchens. It is a cold-hardy strain that thrives in Canada's harsh climate and consistently produces firm, healthy bulbs with good size.    

Beautiful purple colouring with some white coming through. Has great full flavour without too much spicy heat. One of the mildest purple stripe garlic varieties available which makes it great for eating raw.

As with other Purple Stripes, its plants are medium-sized with slender leaves. Requires scape removal, adequate moisture and good fertility for maximum bulb size.

Bulbs have 8 to 10 cloves and store 6 to 8 months.
