Shantung Purple Turban Garlic Seeds
Shantung purple Turban Garlic seeds are a very beautiful variety. The skin of the shantung purple garlic Seeds has purple blotching on the outer wrappers and pink or earth tone on the clove itself. The taste of fabulous garlic seeds has a fiery hot flavor when raw. The Turban varieties mature weeks before the other varieties, if you want garlic seeds that are ready before all the other garlic, then shantung purple turban is the garlic for you.
This variety is a hardneck which means it will grow a garlic scape which is the flower of the garlic plant. The scape should be snapped off once the stem starts to curl to send the energy to the bulb rather than the flower. Garlic scapes are very tasty and can be used in stir-fry or however you use garlic currently.
This tall, dark and green plant is easy to grow and is resistant to a wide variety of diseases that usually infect garlic. It is well suited for growing in almost all states, however, its growth may be marginal in southern states with hot early summers.
