Garlic Sampler, Hardneck Varieties

Seven Seeds Farm

$ 30.00


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 each of 4 varieties of garlic for which we have limited quantities. Please note that the hardneck garlic varieties included may vary depending on availability. 

Each type represents a different facet of the garlic genome:

German White: A wonderful porcelain hardneck type that we have grown for nearly 20 years here. This is our favorite garlic on the farm here on account of its large cloves that peel easily. Bulbs are satin white over pink clove wrappers.  Most bulbs will have only 4-6 cloves, saving time in the kitchen. 

KishlykThis is a Wild garlic type - similar to a Purple Stripe from Uzbekistan in the center of origin for garlic.  Very handsome purple striped bulbs have 8-12 tall, elongated crescent shaped cloves with a building fiery spicy flavor. The cloves have a bright purple clove wrapper. An exquisitely gorgeous garlic that grows sturdy and vigorous plants. Remarkably spicy, a little goes a long ways!!!

Pyongyang: Named after the capital of North Korea, this beautiful Asiatic type has beautiful purple striping over white bulb wrappers with bronze / red clove wrappers.  The cloves are tall and elongated and are easy to peel. Asiatic types are a hardneck so they produce scapes that are best clipped off before they elongate for the largest bulbs.  Produces 4-8 large, easy to peel cloves per bulb.

Red Janice: 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 Basque but stores longer and holds more heat! (Only available in the Hardneck Garlic Sampler)

They are all fairly distinct in their appearance, flavor and growth habit, so you will learn quite a bit about what growing garlic is all about.
