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.
Please note: All garlic seed ordered now will be shipped on Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s through October.
8 oz: $13.25. Now on sale: $12.75 – Large bulbs with one or two cloves missing. Cloves were damaged in the field, so we removed the damaged cloves and the rest of the cloves are fine.
