Garlic, Purple marbled Stripe 'Red Russian' 1 Bulb
Common name: Fall Planting Garlic. Hardneck Garlic
Marbled Purple Stripe tend to have stunning purplish bulb wrappers. However, the cloves within are typically more on the brown side. Marbled Purple Stripes have grown steadily in popularity due to their consistent clove size, consistent taste, dependable growth in the garden and field, and relatively long storage life (six months and more).
Red Russian is a consistent grower and the perfect general purpose garlic. Hot but not a scorcher.
They have cloves per bulb; 6 to 8 being common. Skins are not difficult to peel but they are tight, which helps them to store well into the new year.
Harvest- Mid to late season harvest. Let those bulbs reach their maximum size by waiting until a good 50% of the leaves are brown. The wrappers on Marbled Purple Stripes (which are an extension of the leaves above) are so thick and strong that you don't need as many to be intact at harvest.
Storage- Good mid to long-term storing garlic. Expect 6-8 months if cured and stored properly
Bulbs require well drained soil. Will not perform well if soil holds to much water.
