None available – sorry. Due to wild climatic swings, during the few weeks that the day length triggers bulb formation, across most of the main growing areas of NSW and Victoria, most garlic varieties from the Turban group (of which Italian Purple is one) shot additional leaves – hairy tops – rather than producing bulbs. We lost 70% of our crop due to this anomaly and does mean that Australian garlic may be difficult to find this year
A Turban hardneck garlic with mild burgundy-skninned cloves. This variety has a lingering and mellow flavour.
The Italian Purple loose cloves order will be made up of 250g of loose cloves (1/4kg). The cloves skins may be either soft pink or white due to a difficult and wet harvest. The cloves will still store well in an open dish on your kitchen bench and taste delicious. Stores well for 4-6 months
We apologise that due to quarantine regulations, we can only ship to NSW, ACT, QLD and VIC. Delivery is made by Australia Post and we will send your order on the first Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday following your order. This prevents your garlic sitting at the depot over the weekend. Price includes postage and handling.
