Italian Late (Artichoke) Seed Bulb

$7.50 incl. GST

This is the original genetic line of my Italian Late strain with slightly more cloves which are slightly smaller than the new strain Italian Late (All Large Cloves).  Produces lovely large bulb and with the amazing Italian Late (strong, sharpy and creamy) flavours that so many adore. Despite its sharpness – it caramelises beautifully, giving a wonderful combination of sweet and sharp at the same time.
