Persian Star

One of the most beautiful of the Hardneck, Purple Stripe group.  Thick white wrappers are streaked with purple and are pretty enough to keep a bowl full on the table. Full, garlicky flavour with very little heat sweetens when roasted. Medium sized bulbs have 4-7 large, easy to peel cloves and are a joy in the kitchen. Stores for approximately 6 months.
