Allium Sativum var. ophioscorodon (Hardneck) - Exceptional, pink cloved hardneck garlic showing great vigour in UK climate. Most successful of all hardnecks in UK with good skin cover, great strength of flavour coupled with a superior (in our opinion) bouquet and character. This variety was probably brought to Carcassonne by pilgrims travelling
from the east on their way to Compostela.
