Regeneratively Grown Purple Stripe Seed Garlic - South West Grown

Regeneratively Grown Purple Stripe Seed Garlic Bulbs:

If you’ve never tried local organic garlic before, we highly recommend trying these  purple stripe garlic bulbs grown on Galloway Springs Farm near Bridgetown, South of Perth.  You’ll be amazed by the incredible flavours. 

Local garlic can be hard to find as most garlic is imported from China. 

Galloway Springs Farm practises Regenerative Agriculture and is pesticide free.

Price is per bulb. These bulbs average around 10-15 cloves.

About the Purple Stripe Variety:

Purple Stripe is one of the most popular varieties of garlic to grow for the home and market gardener alike as it is a great all rounder due to it's combination of good yield, great flavour and presentability. There are about a dozen named cultivars in the Standard Purple Stripe Group with around half a dozen grown in quantity commercially around the world. This cultivar - the "Dunganski", seems to be the only one currently grown in any quantity in Australia.

The Purple Stripe is a Hardneck - Strongly Bolting Garlic variety. Scapes (leafless green flower stalks originating from ground basal leaves) develop thick and strong early in the growth cycle. Removing the scapes will help to increase the bulb size at harvest time.

This garlic prefers the cooler climate of the south west, however, will do well for a few seasons in the warmer areas of Perth, inland and further north, before the bulb size gradually reduces and it is recommended to start with fresh seed stock. 

Purple Stripe is rich and strong with a fusion of different flavours and develops a nutty flavour when cooked. 

Medium to long storage

Purple Stripe garlic has a medium to long storage time of up to 6 months after harvesting.

Price is per bulb. Average weight of bulbs is over 30 grams. Approximately 8-12 cloves per bulb. 

We also stock organic Rojo garlic and spray free elephant garlic.

How to Grow Great Garlic

Plant garlic cloves between the end of March to the end of May for the Purple Stripe variety of garlic in the south west of WA. Plant in March to early April in warmer climates. In cooler parts of Australia, spring is preferable.

Choose the largest cloves for planting - big cloves means big heads.

Prepare the ground with lime, compost and pelletised chicken manure, making sure that it is well worked-through the ground and weeds removed.

Plant the cloves 8 - 10 cm apart and 4 cm deep with the pointy bit upwards.

Water the plantings in well and keep the plants regularly watered, not letting them dry out through the growing season.

Keep the plants free of weeds, especially during the early part of the growing season.

How to Harvest Garlic

Harvest when the plants are dry and half the leaves have browned off and died. This will happen from the base of the plants. It is not essential to remove the flower stalks.

Knock most of the soil off the mature garlic and either hang or place on racks to dry for three weeks minimum before cutting off the stalks and roots and storing in a cool, dry place with ample air flow to prevent post-harvest rot.

You can begin to eat your garlic as soon as the bulbs begin to swell, stems and all, like for leeks, or when you first harvest and the skins are still soft. You do not have to wait for them to dry.

Correctly dried, your garlic will last until the end of May when they begin to sprout their green shoots.
