Tessa (TGS-Std Purple Stripe+PK) Seed Bulb

$9.50 incl. GST

Very proud to release Tessa, which is a True Garlic Seed cross between Perhonnen Kahdesta (PK) and another Std Purple Stripe.  PK was my first SPS/MPS True Garlic Seed and I’ve loved its depth of flavour and robustness – particularly around wet soils.  This latest recross has provided the wonderful strength of PK’s clove colour and flavour with a more Std Purple Stripe bulb finish and storage. Bulbs are still increasing in size each season – so bigger bulbs to come.  Strong, rich, deep garlic flavours with nice heat and a general all-rounder in the kitchen.  Love and enjoy this beauty and culinary quality.
