Duganskij Hardneck Purple Stripe Garlic - Sustainably Grown

Allium sativum subs. ophioscorodon Originally from Kazakhstan, late-maturing Duganskij (dew-GAN-skee) grows 6–8 generously sized cloves per bulb. Its flavor reaches its peak in mid-late winter at the time that tight skins become easier to peel. Our grower in northern Maine says Duganskij “stores well for us in cold storage into May.”

Additional Information

Purple Stripe Garlic, hardneck type

Hails from the harsh climate of central Asia and is the closest to the wild garlic ancestors. Genetic research shows the Purple Stripe group is the basis of all other types.

Tightly wrapped cloves with long tips, 6–14 per bulb. Skins of both bulbs and cloves are strongly striped in purple. Cloves form a single layer around the hard center stalk, though very large bulbs may have inner cloves.

Scapes coil vigorously. 50–60 cloves per pound.

Seed Garlic

The bulb size, the skin color, the flavor, and the size and number of cloves are partly determined by genetics, and partly by cultural practices, soil and weather.

Our standard for a seed garlic bulb is a minimum 2" diameter. Every lot of garlic we ship has tested negative for garlic bloat nematode and for white rot.
