Italian Purple Garlic (Allium sativum). The bulb is large and white-skinned with purple stripes and numerous small cloves. This vigorous plant is better adapted to summer heat than Italian Late.
Being a Rocambole garlic, its flavor is rich and strong, but not overly hot and spice. It grows well in cold winter areas and usually grows healthy in uniform bulbs. Italian Purple usually has 8 to 9 easy to peel cloves with no smaller inner cloves.
