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

Stores well, but will start sprouting by the fall.

History Notes

Maiskij Garlic was brought to North America by a J. Swenson from Ashkabad, Turkmenistan Republic.

"Give me a platter of choice finnan haddie, freshly cooked in its bath of water and milk, add melted butter, a slice or two of hot toast, a pot of steaming Darjeeling tea, and you may tell the butler to dispense with the caviar, truffles and nightingales' tongues."

-- Craig Claiborne (American food writer. 4 September 1920 – 22 January 2000)
