Description: An heirloom variety found growing wild in the sand dunes near Takahue in the Far North. Excellent quality, streaky red skinned cloves. A soft top garlic good for plaiting. Quite a strong garlic so great for culinary and medicinal purposes. Turned up from a different source as an old Dalmatian garlic.
Planting Instructions: Garlic does best in light soils with good drainage and needs a sunny position. Enrich soil with well rotted manure, compost, lime and Nature’s Garden prior to planting. Plant on 10 to 12.5 cm diagonal spacings from May to August. Mulch after planting to help keep free of weeds.
