Egyptian 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.
Egyptian White Garlic is very commonly grown in South African gardens. It is a small bulb softneck type that is quite strong and predominantly white in colour. Egyptian White Garlic is a great storage garlic and will last many months if stored in a cool dry area.
Plants are robust and bulbs are smaller with normal sized cloves. Soft neck variety.
Approximately 12 cloves
