Description

A classic Purple Stripe variety that originates from the Republic of Georgia in Eastern Europe. A joy to grow as it performs well under a wide range of conditions. It is cold hardy and does well on a range of soil types.  

Has beautifully coloured bulbs that clean easily. Cloves have a hot and spicy flavour that can linger nicely. Flavour mellows over time with storage and cooking. Good for baking with a creamy texture.

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

Bulbs have 8 to 10 cloves and store 6 to 8 months. Canadian Heritage Variety

Garlic is a heavy feeder. For best results, apply a well-balanced organic fertilizer at planting and in spring. Planting a green manure cover crop the season before growing garlic is also recommended. 

 

See our Garlic Growing Guide for detailed planting and growing instructions.
