Marbled Purple Stripe Seed Garlic

HARDNECK

Marbled Purple Stripe strains have become very popular with Filaree customers in recent years.  They stand apart from other Purple Stripe varieties with their symmetrical clove structure; 4-7 plump cloves are clearly defined without breaking apart the bulb.  Easy-to-peel clove wrappers are a pleasure in the kitchen. These are our favorite strains for roasted garlic! Beautiful purple and chestnut clove wrappers, mottled purple bulb wrappers.

Approx 55 cloves per pound and stores approx 4-6 months

RUSSIAN RED

This is the standard commercial garlic grown throughout British Columbia. There are two strains referred to as "Russian Red", one is a true Rocambole and the other a Marbled Purple stripe. This strain is often mistakenly called a Rocambole by growers. It does have a flavor similar to Rocamboles in its complexity. Beautiful purple bulb wrappers. Clove wrappers are brown and purple. This strain produces large bulbs that are easy to peel and store very well .
