Asiatic Seed Garlic

GENERALLY HARDNECK

These strains took a long time track down!  Asiatics are a unique group with a wide range of characteristics.  Large, plump cloves are richly flavored, hot raw, yet creamy and flavorful when cooked. Fine striping sets these strains apart, with colors ranging from white and yellow/beige to purple and reds. These strains can be grown in a wide range of climates. In northern climates they generally produce an unusual scape with a long bean-pod shaped bulbil capsule, in southern climates they may produce no scape at all.

Approx 45 cloves per pound and stores approx 4 months

JAPANESE

A very unique strain with 5 to 7 large yellow to tan cloves. Beautiful delicate white bulb wrapper. Very long bulbil capsules. Baking creates a smooth texture with lingering heat and flavor. Raw, it slowly heats up and leaves a lingering pleasant aftertaste. Giannangelo Farms obtained this rare garlic from an elderly Japanese farmer in western Washington.

 

Fall inventory will be updated soon! Please check back in late January 2018.
