Turban Seed Garlic

GENERALLY HARDNECK

Turban garlics are the earliest to harvest, often several weeks before other varieties. Their cloves are succulent and hot. They originate from SE Asia and are fantastic for flavoring cuisine from this region. A great choice for early markets, these bulbs impress with their flattened shape and striking purple blotching. These strains are often the first to sprout in the spring. Turbans are weak-bolting hardnecks; usually producing scapes in the northern states but seldom in warmer climates. A top choice for the Gulf Coast and other warm climates, yet adaptable enough to grow large bulbs at our home farm in far north Washington State.

Approx 65 cloves per pound and stores approx 4 months
