FLAVOUR: Hot when raw, mild when cooked.
DESCRIPTION: Extra early to harvest and the most gorgeous purple bulbs you've ever seen. Deep Purple as the name suggests is attractive! For gardeners and garlic farmers, this sub species is an ideal bulb from the Turban group as it matures early while it has a longer shelf life after harvesting. It is less common of the hard necked garlic from the Asiatic group. This variety should be planted two weeks later and harvested earlier than most others. It likes to send up shoots in the fall so it should be planted deeper. It is aromatic and produces a well rounded taste.
