ITALIAN PURPLE - seed bulbs

Starting at: $9.00

This is a hard neck variety of garlic that seems to love cold winters. I received my starts from a friend in Pennsylvania. This garlic definitely prefers cooler weather and doesn't seem to much like the hot springs that Kentucky is known for.

2020 is the last year I will offer this variety.

Italian Purple has a rich, musky but mellow flavor. Strong, but not overly hot. From only smaller sized bulbs, I was able to grow some quite large bulbs in less than two seasons. It's long standing in the garden, tall and erect. Very easy to harvest. If your soil is loose and loamy, you can almost pull it out without any digging. In northern parts of the US, I believe it's not harvested until late July or even August. Red or purple streaked bulbs.

Quantities listed are for bulbs over 1.75" If you want smaller bulbs, they are listed as culinary bulbs and will measure less than 1.75" across.
