Grown by Farragut Farm in a remote, roadless bay about 25 miles north of Petersburg in Southeast Alaska. They are uncertified organic, caring for and improving the soil everyday. This is not your standard culinary garlic and has been meticulously bred by bulbils specifically for seed. Bulbil grown seed garlic is a long and laborious process that is significantly less likely to have soil borne disease. This seed is many years in the making and we are so proud to offer such an exceptional product from the best of Alaskan growers.
Russian Giant is a Marbled Purple Stripe garlic with a rich flavor that is very hot when raw. Very large heads with fat cloves are great for beginners and new growers can achieve first year success more easily with Russian Giant than with most other varieties. The heads are broken into 4 to 8 equally sized huge and very pretty cloves. No small cloves to peel makes this a cook's favorite. It pulls a bit harder in heavy soils than is ideal for commercial production but is a wonderful variety for the home gardener. Great storage.
Sold by the 1/2 pound. Seed garlic is a clone of the parent plant. You will receive what you see pictured. 4-8 cloves per bulb, 6-8 bulbs per pound. Approximately 24-64 plants per pound. If planting 6" apart in a grid pattern, approximately 50 plants will fill a 4 x 4' bed.
