Organic Rose du Var Garlic HEIRLOOM A beloved French softneck, a favorite in our Great Garlic Tasting of 2015 for its sweet, nutty flavor and rich aroma. It pairs exceptionally well with white wine, eggs and vegetables. Bulbs are bright silver with 8-12 rose-blushed cloves at their tip. Cloves are arranged in two layers, each layer equally large. An unusually culinary 'Silverskin' type, Rose du Var is extremely long storing and our favorite for braiding.

‘Silverskin’ varieties are softneck and classically braided when they are harvested. They do not produce scapes and may fall over (lodge) just before harvest which is typically after most other types. Silverskin varieties are found in grocery stores since they have the longest storage/shelf life of all the garlic types. Bulbs are fine, silver-white, smooth, tear-drop shaped and average 10 to 16 cloves per bulb. Clove peeling becomes easier the longer they are stored. As a group, Silverskin flavor is very hot with little complexity.

Wonderful experience buying from Fruition Seeds!
As a new gardener I had a lot of questions regarding growing garlic.  Petra is very knowledgeable and helpful.  Thank you Petra!
