Ashok White Garlic
Planting season 2024, kindly note:
All our soft neck varieties, Egyptian White & Pink, Ashok White & Pink as well as Persian White has very small cloves this year. For some inexplicable reason our growing season for these has not been optimal, yet alone all the hard neck types did splendid. This in itself does not impact the quality of the bulbs you can expect. Even though the planting cloves are small, they all come from stock we carefully selected for more than 10 years. We will however add a few extra cloves in the packs on all the soft neck varieties for you to grow more.
Ashok White garlic is a garlic variety that produce extra large bulbs, In fact of the biggest you can get from a soft neck garlic, they are easy to grow with quick maturity.
We received a white and pink garlic variety from our good friend Ashok, and outstanding vegetable farmer, residing in Midrand. These varieties has been grown for many years by his family in the KZN province of South Africa. Ashok does not know the actual name, its just that his family been growing it for years, so we decided to name the two varieties after him. We suspect that these two varieties originated through trait selection from the popular Egyptian white and Pink garlic strains over time. They are however not the same, these varieties produce larger bulbs.
Plants are robust, with extra long leaves, bulbs are large with medium to large sized cloves. Soft neck variety.
Approximately 12 cloves
