An heirloom, artichoke-type softneck brought from Italy around 1850. The perfect choice for those who like their garlic hot and spicy. Large, sometimes flat-round bulbs are easy-to-peel and often times exhibit purplish tints on the skins. Large heads are also great for roasting.
Care: Plant 6-8″ apart, 1-2″ deep. Harvest when all but 3-4 leaves turn dry and brown (usually July). Hang to dry in cool, shady, ventilated area for 2 weeks, then store in a cool dark location.
