Garlic Sampler

Siskiyou Seeds

$ 28.00

Interested in growing garlic but can't settle on which variety?  We'd love to introduce you into the wide world of garlic diversity with our garlic samplers.  We offer a few different options: 1/2 pound or 1/4 pound each of 4 varieties of garlic for which we have limited quantities. Please note the garlic varieties included may change depending on availability. 

Each type represents a different facet of the garlic genome:

Katabora - Hardneck variety. Bread from seed by Avram at Garlicana and made its way to us via Myrtle Creek Farm. This absolutely unique variety shares traits of glazed and porcelain garlics. It has an upright growth habit due to fibrous leaves which makes the plant easier to cultivate the weeds.  It's on the spicy side but by no means near the hottest. 

Mount St Helens - A large family heirloom from Washington that is a softneck silverneck type with large cloves, mild flavor and is an excellent keeper.

Red Janice - Hardneck variety. This is a very pretty Turban type with flattened bulbs with purple striping originally from Nmarazeni in Republic of Georgia. Starts hot and heat continues to build. Matures a little later than Basquem but stores longer and holds more heat! 

 Siskiyou Purple Garlic  We have been growing, selecting and perfecting this beautiful softneck variety for the over 20 years. This strain originated as 2 similar varieties: Lorz Italian & Applegate Red. After years of sorting it emerged as something new and unique, deserving a new name!  This strain is from the Artichoke subgroup of garlic, which possess the general characteristics of a soft flexible neck, purple tint/blush to the outer wrappers and clove wrappers.  Whereas some artichoke types can have up to 30 cloves, our strain usually has 8-15 cloves per bulb.  This means less small inner cloves that are more difficult to deal with in the kitchen!  Of all of our varieties, this is the easiest to grow to large size.  It can attain a diameter of 3 1/2 inches!
