Marbled Purple Stripe
Marbled Purple Stripe bulbs have white wrappers with attractive, purple marbling or striping.
Each bulb is made up of 4 to 8 large cloves with thick, dark-brown skins that have purple stripes.
The cloves have sharp, pointed tips and are easy to peel. They will store for 6 to 8 months.
They have a solid garlic flavour, which is moderate to very hot when raw.
Some cultivars are best eaten raw; while the flavour of others, such as Siberian and Bogatyr, is maintained when cooked.
They are all high in allicin content.
