- A true medium hardneck garlic that is sweet when roasted.
- Harvests early-mid summer - stores through winter.
Belarus is another beautiful Purple Stripe garlic with a rich garlicky flavor and is delightfully mellow but with a little bite when raw. The outer bulb wrappers are white and thick and becoming vertically striped with increasingly more purple stripes the closer to the cloves one gets. The clove covers themselves are a deep reddish purple. If you like a lot of red, you'll love these Purple Stripe garlics.
Belarus can be a very prolific garlic in cold winter areas and grows well in states with moderate temps but probably not for extreme southern areas.
NOTE: None of the growers in our farmers market currently have this cultivar for sale.
