Purple Stripe garlics are characterized by hardy plants that produce striking bulbs. On the farm, Purple Stripes are consistently one of our highest yielding hardneck varieties. Their stunning bulb wrappers are streaked with purple. Bulbs reveal 8-12, easily peeled cloves. The flavor is strong and complex, not overpowered by heat and well-suited for roasting. Purple Stripes are in the medium range in terms of storage life, generally keeping for 4 to 6 months.
