Bass Strait, Tasmania Wholesome tasty garlic of several varieties - early, mid season and late storing so you can buy or grow fresh garlic for the whole year. We grow our garlic using NO pesticide or herbicide NO fumigant, bleach or GMO
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 diced 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.
Plenty of Turbans and Artichoke garlics are available for posting by late December / early January. Creoles are available by mid January. We offer planting bulbs of harder to find, named cultivars for the home garlic gardener, - Silverskins, Purple Stripes, Rocambole, Marbled and Glazed Purple Stripes available in our Garlic Collectors Box Sets for sale around February, in time for the planting season. Contact us closer to February for more details. Please note some varieties are available as individual bulbs only.
