A Purple Stripe garlic variety that originates from the Republic of Georgia in Eastern Europe. One of our best performing garlic varieties. 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 does mellow 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. 

Listed in the Seeds of Diversity Canada catalogue of heritage varieties.

For planting instructions, see our How To Plant Garlic page.
