DESCRIPTION: Persian Star is a beautifully textured Purple Stripe and the bulbs are pretty enough to be used as a centerpiece. This Heritage variety is a hardneck garlic that harvests mid-summer and stores for about 6 months. The cloves are red-tipped with marbled streaks on a background that could range from white to yellow brown. Purple stripes such as the Persian Star garlic are very flavorful, with a robust garlic taste that isn’t as sulfurous and overpowering as some varieties can be. This varietal is full flavored with only a small bite and is more mellow than hot as are most other standard Purple Stripes. It is recommended for use with chicken and seafood as it seems to have citrus overtones.
