A braidable variety that was originally grown on the San Juan Islands of Washington State. It has a robust flavor with a hint of sweetness and is delicious when eaten raw. 

Easy to grow in cold climates and forms large bulbs. Very cold winters can cause some plants to bolt or form bulbils in the stem, however, these do not need to be removed for good bulb size. Should be harvested once the first leaf or two have started to brown.

It produces a very large bulb with medium sized cloves. Requires good fertility (particularly high Nitrogen) and adequate soil moisture to size up properly. 

Has nice uniform bulbs that are easy to braid and make a great presentation! 

Bulbs have 8 to 12 cloves and stores for up to a year.
