Mixed Artichoke softneck varieties – Early Italian Red and Transylvanian. The garlic bulbs are mixed and will be shipped in one bag. This garlic is not from China!

Early Red Italian – Artichoke softneck variety. Introduced to the U.S. from Telowa Farm, in southern Oregon, AKA “Early Red Italian”. This Italian cultivar is easy to grow, producing large bulbs tinted with hues of crimson and red. In the garden, the leaves turn a slight reddish tint just before harvest. Early Italian Red is quite flavorful for a softneck, without producing too much heat: a splendid ingredient for your favorite marinara sauce. 10 – 15 cloves per bulb. 85 – 95 cloves per pound. Early harvest. Stores 6 – 7 months. Recommended for Zones 2-10. Mild.

Transylvanian – Artichoke softneck variety. Originated from the Transylvanian province of Romania, and brought to the U.S. by Chester Aaron. This softneck variety produces large bulbs with dappled patches of crimson red. It has a buttery smooth start that finishes with some heat (and of course it will chase off the vampires!) Akin to the Transylvanian Alps, this softneck thrives in cold winter climates. A huge producer, in the garden one pound of seed will yield over 80 plants. This Artichoke softneck varietal is an excellent choice for braiding due to it’s gorgeous red and purple bulb skin color. All Hood River Garlic is Certified Organic and grown in the Columbia River Gorge, Oregon and Washington, USA.

Please note: All orders placed now will be shipped starting October 22nd. Thank you.
