Rojo de Castro (Creole) Seed Bulb

$7.75 incl. GST

One of the classic creoles renowned as a cooking garlic, where its rich deep flavours sweeten, mellow and linger.  This 2021 season is the first season I am super happy with this strain’s return to peak health – so very proud of the 6 years it’s taken to rejuvenate this genetic line.
