Duganski purple stripe garlic is known for its strong, pungent flavor that starts with an initial fiery burst of heat! But don't worry, the heat quickly subsides leaving behind a pleasant after taste. This hardneck variety also holds its flavor through cooking.
The amazing flavor is contained in large bulbs with a violet hue, wrapped in its signature purple and white striped wrappers waiting to be opened. Duganski purple stripe garlic yields about 10 cloves per bulb, and has a storage life of 5 to 6 months. This heavy producer can produce 50 to 60 cloves per pound!
Purple stripe garlic: Purple stripe garlic varieties stand out with bright purple striped paper surrounding 8-12 cloves. Cloves are tall, almost elongated, and half-moon in shape. Leaves grow at a wide angle from the stem almost floppy in form. Possibly the only garlic that retains its ability to produce fertile pollen.
