1/2 Pound Variety Pack Description:
The 1/2 pound Variety Pack includes a 1/4 pound each: This is the last 1/2 # Variety Pack, it is .20 of a pound of loose Zemo cloves. (Nice cloves, we had prepped them to plant but ran out of room) The other .30 pound is full bulbs of Silver White. On sale $13.75.
- Zemo – Porcelain hardneck variety. Originated from the village of Zemo Surebi in the Supsa valley boarding the Adzaro-Imeretinian Mountains, Cochatauri Province, in the Republic of Georgia. Zemo can handle cold winter climates. During a taste test of 8 different garlic varieties, Zemo was chosen as one of the panels’ favorite by America’s Test Kitchen from Cook’s Illustrated magazine. Creamy white teardrop shaped bulbs, spicy garlic flavor and high allicin content.
4 to 6 cloves per bulb. 25 to 30 cloves per pound. Late harvest. Stores 6 months. Zones 1 to 7. Produces scapes. Hot.
- Silverskin softneck variety. Silverskins can grow in varied climates: from maritime, cool wet winters to arid, hot dry winters. They make terrific garlic braids with their broad tall leaves, and outstanding storage quality. In storage, they can handle more humidity than other softnecks, making them some of the longest storing garlic of all. If stored properly a spring planting is very productive. The bulb skins are white with hints of pink and the flavor is spicy. This is my new favorite garlic!! It is now June 22nd, 2020 and we just ate our last few cloves of Silver White.
