Spanish Roja Prima 2019 (Creole) Seed Bulb

$7.75 incl. GST

Prima is a natural mutation found in Spanish Roja and unbelievably is even better than Spanish Roja – independently confirmed by one of my very learned garlic friends.
One of those lucky finds when I noticed that a single bulb showed slightly different clove characteristics and when grown separately, those characteristics persisted.
Four years in the breeding bins … and is looking and tasting fantastic.  Can’t wait to share this one with you – targeting a 2019 season release.
