As the name suggests, this Artichoke Softneck variety originates from the mountains of Transylvania in Central Romania. It is one of the most cold-hardy softnecks that can be grown in Canada and can produce large bulbs under good growing conditions.   

Plants can be easily braided for storage or selling, making it popular with market gardeners who sell directly to customers. 

Transylvanian has a mild-tasting flavour with a hint of heat when eaten raw. Bulbs have 8 to 10 cloves of varying sizes.

When exposed to very cold winters or when grown under stressful conditions such as drought, some plants may develop scapes or form bulbils in the stem. However, these do not need to be removed for good bulb size. Bolting does not affect the quality of the bulbs.

Requires good fertility and adequate soil moisture to size up properly. Should be harvested once the first three leaves have started to brown.

Stores for 8 to 12 months.
