We believe in local food for everyone - if you’re not lucky enough to be here on King Island we can share a range of cultivars for your kitchen or garden.
Did you know there are eleven different known groups of garlic, with varieties to last through the year!
Available per kilo:
*Turbans - early and beautiful, best roasted or raw. Store till around May.
*Artichokes - mid-season, strong taste, best chopped or minced and pan-fried. Store till around August.
*Creole - our chef's choice 'Top Shelf Reds', exquisite, characterful flavour both raw and cooked. Late storing, to October and beyond.
*Silverskins - zesty, strong flavour. Super long storage makes up for their smaller size.
Storage tip: smaller bulbs of any particular variety will last longer than large ones of the same variety.
We offer planting bulbs of harder to find named cultivars for the home garlic gardener, ready for sale around February. Turbans, Artichokes, French or Spanish Creoles, Silverskins, Purple Stripes, Marbled and Glazed Purple Stripes. Contact us closer to February for more details. Please note some varieties are available as individual bulbs only.
