This Eastern European treasure is a fiery variety with a mellow and smooth aftertaste. It has heat when eaten raw and a wonderfully rich, complex garlicky flavour when cooked.

Russian Red is high yielding when grown in rich soils with adequate moisture. It thrives in Canada's cold climate and explodes out of the ground in spring. Generally tolerates wet soil conditions fairly well. 

Has large bulbs with 8 to 12 cloves of medium size. Bulb wrappers range from having slight pinkish and purple tones to strong purple stripes depending on local growing conditions. 

Bulb wrappers are fairly tight which makes for good storage. Keeps for 6 to 8 months.
