Chesnok Red (Purple stripe, hardneck) SOLD OUT FOR 2015
Originally collected in 1985 in the Republic of Georgia, Chesnok Red is also known as Shvelisi, the name of the village where it was collected. We have found Chesnok bulbs to be a bit on the small side, but the flavor is excellent!
French Red (Artichoke, softneck) SOLD OUT FOR 2015
One of the few softneck varieties that grows well in Maine. Does not produce scapes but, when stressed, as it often is in northern climates, it can grow bulbils in the lower part of the stalk, near the root. Beautiful, hardy garlic.
Persian Tempest (Purple Stripe, hardneck) SOLD OUT FOR 2015
A typically colored purple stripe with excellent roasting flavor.
Georgian Crystal (Porcelain, hard neck) SOLD OUT FOR 2015
A reliable porcelain with a slightly milder flavor than some. Large bulbs, large cloves, very hardy.
Music (Porcelain, hardneck) - SOLD OUT FOR 2015
Introduced to Ontario from Italy in the 1980s by Al Music. Typically has large bulbs.
Romanian Red (Porcelain, hardneck) - SOLD OUT FOR 2015
Brought from Romania to British Columbia, Canada. Thought to be one of the first varieties to be brought to North America. In a study of more than 20 cultivars, Romanian Red yielded the most allicin. (from The Complete Book of Garlic).
Rosewood (Porcelain, hardneck) SOLD OUT FOR 2015
So known for the rosy color of its paper. Medium sized bulbs. More complex flavor than many porcelains. High in allicin.
Persian Star (aka Samarkand) (Purple Stripe, hardneck) SOLD OUT FOR 2015
Collected at a bazaar in Samarkand, Uzbekistan by John Swenson in 1989. Complex flavor, excellent for roasting. Our favorite among the purple stripes that we grow.
