Heritage - Variety Seed Pack x 5 Bulbs

This pack includes:

Lubasha Wight ® x 3 bulb: Allium Sativum ophioscorodon (Hardneck) - An exceptional garlic variety originating from Ukraine yet well suited to growing conditions in the UK. Large cloves and bulbs with a vivid purple skin. Lyubasha in Russian translates as "Little loved one". Excellent for bringing strong base flavours to soups and stews but also excellent roasting garlic. In the Ukraine, a national pick me up as salo, peeled Lubasha cloves taken with salted pork fat and vodka. A Ukrainian nurse, working on the Isle of Wight, tells us "Ukrainian men no make love until they have had at least two shots of salo"! Stores well for up to 6 months from harvest. Best planted in the Autumn.

Porcelain Wight x 2 bulb: Allium Sativum ophioscorodon (Hardneck) - Originates in the Caucasus Mountain range, stretching between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. Towering plants, with broad leaves the scapes form wide loops rather than coils. The bulbs have white wrappers enclosing 3-7 cloves. They are very hot and sulphurous, a raw taste lending well to salsas and spicy foods. They are also exceptional when roasted, exuding a nutty flavour. Porcelains have the highest allicin content of any of garlic's horticultural groups, the vital sulphur compound in garlic's health giving properties. Late to mature, they may store 6-8 months..
