Item details

This listing is for one (1) packet of 30 Asian Tempest Garlic bulbils collected from our own plants.

Allium sativum var. ophioscorodon

This is an Asiatic hardback variety originating in South Korea. It has a hot, strong taste when raw, full sweeter taste baked and is easy to peel and keeps well. It grows a long scape and the bulbs are streaked white and purple.

Bulbils or top sets offer an alternative approach for growing garlic. They form on a mature scape, sometimes referred to as a garlic flower. The bulbs that grow from them are clones of the parent plant. The main advantage of bulbil-grown garlic is that they avoid soil-bourns disease.

Please note that the bulbils will produce small round bulbs that are not divided into cloves for the first year. These can be peeled and eaten, we've used these extensively in our cooking. If you plant them for a second year, you will get a regular garlic bulb with cloves.

Plant bulbils 1 inch deep and 6 inches apart.
Space rows 6 inches apart.
Water in well.
