Garlic ‘Vietnamese Red’ Purple Stripe Hardneck

Description

Mid-season. This variety has a mild spice that dissipates quickly with a pleasant finish. Vietnamese Red has a creamy texture, and its high sugar content gives it an overall sweeter flavor that’s easy on your stomach. A perfect choice for dishes where the garlic won’t overpower other ingredients, but still provide just enough savory flavor. Its extended shelf life is an extra bonus! Stores 4-6 months.
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.
