Italian Late – All Large Cloves (Artichoke) Seed Bulb

AU$10.95 incl. GST

ALL LARGE CLOVES – A new subspecies of Italian Late – with all huge cloves (no tiny inner clove set). Taken from a single mutant bulb 6 years ago and now produces consistent bulbs with only large cloves.

For those that love artichokes but dislike the wasted inner set of tiny cloves produced in Artichokes – this is an amazing garlic.  Great Italian essential to slow cooked winter dishes.  Sharp, piquant flavours with a creamy richness that stands up to robust Italian ingredients. Despite its sharpness – it caramelises beautifully, giving a wonderful combination of sweet and sharp at the same time.  Sharp and lively when raw – but strong and nutty cooked.
