Garlic 'Australian Purple' (2 Heads)

Garlic is divided into several groups and the first to plant and harvest are the Turbans. Turban garlics are hard neck, weakly-bolting garlics with bulbs that are usually flattened globe shapes, the scapes generally grow as an upside-down U with umbels resembling a turban. Early to plant and harvest, the cloves are generally plump and found in a single layer of 7–15 cloves to a bulb with easy to peel skins. Raw cloves have simple, crisp savoury flavours that can be initially mild to hot, but the heat quickly fades. Lovely roasted.

How to grow

Planting tips: Break the head into individual cloves and plant them pointy end up, about 7cm apart in a well-prepared bed. Cover with 2–7cm of soil (deeper in warmer climates, shallower in cooler climates) and mulch to prevent weeds competing with your bulbs. A slow-growing crop, allocate garden room for at least 6–9 months. Water when required or during periods of drought while actively growing. Harvest when tops die down. Dry and store.
