Purple Stripe variety. Like so many varieties, Siberian originally came from Eastern Europe. It reportedly landed in Alaska sometime in the 19th century and was traded off the docks in return for fresh vegetables. Our strain came to us from a grower in Challis, Idaho (elevation 5,500 feet) and has knocked our socks off ever since! Best of all, it is purported to have high allicin content, possibly the highest of any garlic. Allicin supports normal cholesterol levels, boosts the immune system, and enhances circulation.
Special note: this garlic is mild and creamy when cooked but hot when raw.
Siberian’s mild flavor means you can add more garlic to dishes and receive the maximal health benefits. This lovely garlic has medium to large white bulbs which are usually streaked with pink and purple.
Quantity is by the pound
