Wonky Wight Rustic Garlic: 10-Bulbs

Healthy and flavourful garlic, grown on rotation here on the Isle of Wight. These bulbs contain beautiful cloves and are more rustic and irregular than the bulbs in shops.

  • - Wonky
  • - Rustic
  • - Muddy
  • - Irregular Shaped
  • - Slightly Imperfect
  • - Partially Sprouting

10 bulbs per bundle, minimum.

We will add a few extra if some of the bulbs are smaller or have the odd clove missing.

Please note, these are LOOSE BULBS and not plaited.

Understanding sprouting…
Garlic is a 'single-harvest' crop so it is natural that bulbs in Spring and early Summer may produce some cloves with green shoots. Those with green shoots are not only safe to eat, they are, in some ways preferable! Peer-reviewed trials published in the 'Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry', state that sprouted garlic is actually even healthier than normal. Plants defend themselves from their most vulnerable time of initial growth by producing phytoalexins, which amongst other benefits, boost the already high antioxidant level of garlic.
