Hardneck Garlic - Persian Star

Allium sativum

**Garlic is a pre-order item and quantities are limited.  Garlic will ship beginning of October.**

Persian Star garlic is a very rare and interesting variety that we are excited to debut this year for you. Originating from the area that is now Uzbekistan, this hardneck variety has lovely purple striping and a full but mild flavor. Our farmer friend who is growing this for us is still expanding the stock, so quantities are limited for the 2020 season.

Persian Star purple garlic is a variety with a purple and white striped skin, making this garlic attractive not just for eating but also as decoration and in centerpieces. There are other purple stripe varieties, but this one has the most striking coloration. With origins in the central Asian nation of Uzbekistan, Persian Star garlic is a hardneck variety. This means it will grow a scape, a flowering stem, which is edible. Hardnecks have cloves that form in a single ring in the bulb. They grow better in colder climates than softneck varieties, and they do not store as well. Keep your Persian Star bulbs for only four to six months. Persian Star garlic flavor is less hot than other garlic varieties. Its distinctive garlic heat is milder and more delicate. This means you can eat them raw better than other varieties, but the cloves are also delicious and sweet when roasted.
