Allium Sativum (Softneck) - The original Isle of Wight garlic, particularly well suited to our UK climate. Our best garlic in terms of overall eating and keeping quality. Hard dense bulbs that exude a presence of their own. Long keeping – to April and beyond. Elegant bouquet that retains its flavour during cooking. Large, white bulbs that are easy to plait. Most attractive garlic plaited and hung in the kitchen.
