King Island Garlic "Good, clean food, that's what we're known for."
Wholesome tasty garlic of several interesting varieties
Grown under the clear sky and fresh air of King Island, in the path of the Roaring 40's
Bass Strait, Tasmania We grow our garlic using NO pesticide or herbicide, NO fumigant 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 which have evolved around the Earth.
Did you know? There are at least eleven different known groups, or families of garlic. Some garlic groups include several varieties, with a subtle range of flavours, shapes, sizes, colours and keeping qualities. Some are early maturing, some are harvested late, some are short-storing, others are medium or long keeping. Some are mild and sweetly tasting when cooked whole, where others are strong and pungent! So if you choose wisely you can have fresh garlic to last through the year, to suit any dish! No longer just hardneck or softneck, purple or white! Garlic is not just garlic!
