Organic Regatusso Garlic - Aromatic depth and pleasently mild without singeing heat, even when raw. Large wagon wheel shaped flat and wide, up to 4" across with beautifuly bright purple skins. Brought to New York in the Genesee Valley from southern Italy in the early 1900's by the Regetusso Family. Artichoke softneck with 8-12 cloves per bulb.

Average 40 cloves per pound.



‘Artichoke’ Type: These softnecks do not produce scapes and are among the most productive garlics to grow. They readily develop very large bulbs in a wide range of growing conditions and soils, maturing before many other types. Their bulb wrappers are generally thick and coarse compared to other varieties and are generally white or white-purple. Artichoke cultivars have multiple clove layers (though not as many as Silverskins), the inner cloves generally being smaller than the outer cloves. Artichoke cultivars are typically mild with modest flavor complexity and lack the assertive heat of most garlics. As a group they are less adapted to cold, harsh winters but often adapt well after several seasons (which ours are). Also as a group they store exceptionally long (often a year or more), only exceeded in storage by the Silverskins.

surprisingly large, delicate eating July 21, 2016
Reviewer: Loren K from canandaigua, NY United States  
loved it! totally blow away by size and wagon wheel shape.  Very mild, that we love when we want garlic in a dish but not over powering.
Thanks!
