A vigorous Marbled Purple Stripe variety that comes with a strong flavour and lots of heat. It develops fat cloves and produces very large bulbs similar to porcelain varieties such as Music and Big Boy. Popular with market gardeners due to its size and easy peeling.
Nordic is cold hardy and well suited for regions with harsh winters. It does not tolerate excess moisture very well and therefore is best grown on well-draining soils and/or raised beds.
Scapes produce medium-sized bulbils that can be used for planting, although, scape removal is recommended for maximum bulb size.
Bulbs are uniform with an average of 5 to 8 cloves per bulb. Bulb wrappers and clove skins range in colour from reddish to purple with an intensity that varies depending on the soil and winter conditions.
Generally, only stores for 3 to 5 months so it is best sold or consumed before other longer storing varieties.
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.
