Siciliano is a white garlic that is a feast to the eyes as well as the palate and stores well also and that's asking a lot of a white garlic. The rich flavor is a bonus.
Sicilano has an obvious pearly lustre to it that makes it pleasing to look at and sensous to the touch. It has a rich,deep flavor with a zesty medium pungency and a crisp, crunchy texture that is like a water chestnut with taste and an attitude. Its richness makes it excellent for raw eating as in pesto, salsa or just to have something crunchy to munch on with a sandwich, instead of the usual chips.
Being an Artichoke garlic, Siciliano is an excellent braider and is adaptable to a wide range of climates and is a good garlic for growing in warm winter areas.
True lovers of Mediterranian food have known for centuries that Siciliano is a very special garlic and if you are going to prepare truly authentic Sicilian cuisine, will any other garlic really do?
