Regular price $2.95 Sale

Red Russian (Allium ophioscorodon) - A well adapted marbled purple striped heirloom garlic with distinctive purple wrapped leaves. Red Russian garlic has very good winter hardiness and the ability to tolerate heavier/wetter soils better than other varieties. We have grown this variety in a less than desirable clay-loam field with very good results.  Yields 6-8 good sized cloves.

Our garlic is grown under organic production principles from planting until harvest. All plants, cloves and bulbs are carefully inspected to ensure the highest of quality seed stock. 

Shipping your garlic: The garlic you ordered has been cured and inspected, packaged in paper to allow breathing room. When your garlic arrives we suggest you take it out of the paper bags and give it some room allowing more curing time before you store it for pre-planting in the fall. 

Storing your garlic before planting: Keep your bulbs out of direct sunlight, 10-15 degrees and below 60% Relative humidity with good air circulation. Avoid storing in a place with high temperature or humidity fluctuations. Storage mold may form on garlic that sits on a warm kitchen counter day after day, or a non insulated garage with high overnight humidity.
