Early Purple - Rhapsody Wight Seed (2 or 4 Bulbs)

Allium Sativum (Softneck) - Large purple bulbs with very wide leafy growth. Fresh, zingy flavours perfect in a salad. The first taste of new season garlic, en primeur.

Bright, large, bulbs that lift themselves up out of the ground as they swell, exposing deep purple streaks and mottling. Rated as an Artichoke type but with a strong hint of oriental influence giving it earliness. Historically originating in the village of Cadours, west of Toulouse, south west France as Violet de Cadours. This is the first true garlic of the season, deserving of a "Rhapsody", an ecstatic expression of feeling!

Horticultural Group: Artichoke
Origines: South West France
Cloves: 5 - 12 cloves/ bulb
Expected size: 50 - 70mm
Planted: September - January
Harvested: May - June

  • Growers Tips

The basics: Plant your garlic in an area which will receive maximum sunlight hours. Place the cloves 3 – 4cm below the surface, root down (pointy end up) 6 inches apart. Water your garlic during dry periods, stopping watering completely during the last few weeks. Harvest when the lower leaves start to yellow and fold. Mid May – mid August depending on variety and location.
