Asiatic hardneck variety. Attractive bulbs with brown to auburn colored clove skins. Not a variety to be overlooked, Korean Red is comparable in flavor to its Purple Stripe cousins, but with longer storage quality. Asiatics have peculiar umbel capsules that are extra elongated. They are weak bolters, but they do produce very large bulbils. When planted in the fall the bulbils are capable of producing mini garlic bulbs and garlic scallions in the spring. 7 to 10 cloves per bulb. 60 to 65 cloves per pound. Mid harvest. Stores 6 months. Zones 3 to 10. Produces scapes. Hottest.
Please note: All garlic seed ordered now will be shipped three days a week: Monday’s, Wednesday’s and Friday’s through October.
8 oz: $13.50. We have gorgeous bulbs of Korean Red with one clove missing. Somehow a clove was damaged in the field (bruised) so we removed the clove and the rest of the bulb is fine. 12.75 per 8 oz.
