Morado Garlic

My starts for Morado were given to me about 10 years ago, and I was given only the smallest bulbs you can imagine. So it's taken me a few years to get this garlic into bulbs that are in the small to medium size range. Thankfully the longer I grow it the more bulbs were closer to 2" than in previous years, although I still haven't been able to get this variety to size up for me on a consistent basis. However, what it doesn't have in size it sure makes up for in taste (hot) AND long term storage. THIS IS MY BEST KEEPER GARLIC!

As its name (I think it means bruised in Spanish) it's purple on the outside. Inside cloves are dark skinned. As a Turban variety it is sometimes referred to as a soft-bolting hard neck, which means it does put up a scape. However, as soon as you see that scape, it is usually ready to pick.

Morado, as a turban, is one of the earliest garlics that are ready in my garden, typically end of May.

It's a rare garlic, so one you might want to consider in your garden.

Looking online, I believe the person who gifted me with the starts called it by its full name: Morado de Las PedroƱeras (aka Spanish Morado)
