Maiskij Garlic



Maiskij Garlic has large bulbs with purple-striped skin. The bulb skin flakes off easily, so the bulb is easy to peel.

Inside, there is an average of 8 uniformly-sized cloves per bulb in a single layer, with slightly-pointed tips and tan-coloured skin with purple stripes.

The garlic has a medium-hot taste.

It belongs to the Turban sub-group of the Artichoke group of garlics, itself a subgroup of softneck garlics.

Early harvest.

Storage Hints

    Escargot had their heyday in the 1970s, when everyone ate them with garlic butter and bought the Escargot dishes for home use (but couldn't actually bring themselves to buy the slimy little critters for use in their own kitchen.) You may wish to finally try cooking up Escargot in garlic sauce in your own kitchen. Mind you, you could simmer golf balls in that sauce and they would taste good.
