Commonly known as Persian Star, this great all-around variety has been growing on our farm since the beginning! It's a beautiful Purple Stripe that originates from the Samarkand region of Uzbekistan.
It has light-coloured bulb wrappers and purple-streaked clove skins, making it one of the most attractive garlic varieties. The cloves have distinct long sharp points that resemble a star, lending to its name.
Persian Star is a spicy, elegant full flavoured garlic that has some bite. Gives a nutty flavour when roasted. Similar to Chesnok Red, however, is slightly milder.
A very adaptable cold-hardy variety that can produce large bulbs. It does very well on a wide range of soils, however, it requires scape removal, good fertility, and adequate soil moisture for maximum bulb size.
Skins clean very easily, yet stay tight for good long-term storage.
As with other Purple Stripes, its plants are medium-sized with slender leaves. Bulbs have 8 to 10 cloves and store 6 to 8 months. A 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.
