A British Columbia classic this cultivar is well suited to our area and has deep character. Red Russian or Russian Red as it is called is the most popular garlic variety in BC. And for good reason, Very large bulbs which can easily exceed three inches. Relatively easy peeling clove wrappers. This variety shows all the characteristics of true hardneck garlic. Nice hardy stem makes this variety unbraidable. Huge Bulbs with beautiful purple bulb wrappers, win the eyes of many. Bulbs average 3 inch diameter. with an average of 6-8 cloves per bulb. Cloves have a brownish/purple wrapper with a rounded end. The flavor of this garlic is frankly amazing. If you want a show stopper and want to impress your friends and family by the size and beauty of your homegrown garlic this is the one.
Due to the size of this garlic it does not store well, I find this to be my favorite early variety, enjoy it while it lasts, and then move on to the many other beautiful and exciting varieties later on in the season. Overall a fantastic garlic, If your new to hardneck garlic this is a great choice very tall beautiful plant with large bulbils.
