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
