Italian Marble Crema (Marbled Purple Stripe) Seed Bulb
New 2022 Release. I am so excited about this one. Now you can have a hardneck garlic with huge cloves that has Italian flavours. The very first of my True Garlic Seed Marble Purple Stripe breeds to have the Western European style flavour profiles – intense, sharp, piquant and just a little creaminess. Favours the cooler and colder climates but with those huge clove sizes even your smallest of bulbs will produce very large cloves. Great plant vigour and size and as with all Marbled Purple Stripes – more resistant to rainfall during bulbing. Huge, easy to peel cloves make this garlic group highly desirable and this one is a good one to add to your collection.
