Khabar garlic is a strong flavored, high yielding, and reliable variety. Stocky plants with light green leaves produce big, thick garlic scapes. The flavor is fairly hot with a lingering pungency that mellows nicely when roasted. Plants are medium to late maturity, which helps them miss the worst of garlic rust issues. Originally collected in the Siberian city of Khabarovsk by Bob Ellis, a garlic grower from Sitka, Alaska.
