Purple Stripe Varieties

The garlic for sale on this page belongs to three related hardneck garlic varieties. Purple Stripe, Marbled Purple Stripe and Glazed Purple Stripe are now classified as three distinct varieties of true hardneck varieties of the sub-species Allium sativum ophioscorodon. Standard Purple Stripes have beautiful, elegant bulbs with vividly coloured wrappers and tall, slender cloves. Chesnok Red and Persian Star are classic examples of the Purple Stripe variety. They have 8 to 12 cloves per bulb, are easy to grow, and keep well. If the scapes are left on the plants they produce bulbils that are intermediate in number to the Rocamboles and Porcelains and are a mixture of medium and small bulbils.

 

Both Marbled Purple Stripe and Glazed Purple Stripe garlics have fewer, fatter cloves than garlics of the standard Purple Stripe variety. Marbled Purple Stripes have good potential as commercial garlics. Glazed Purple Stripes have delicate wrappers, requiring careful handling and timely harvesting.

 

Some of the garlic came to us unclassified and we have made our best guess as to the variety.

 

Restrictions on Quantities
