Russian Red (Marbled Purple Stripe) Bulb


Finally out of the breeding program to bring it back to full health.  This is a commercial cultivar renowned throughout garlic regions as being a notable and award-winning garlic.  It has great bulb size and an incredible strong root system – and it has rich strong Russian flavours to boot.  This season it has really sized up nicely (much bigger than the photos).  Love the strong flavours and love the HUGE cloves.
