This Korean Red has a story behind it. It was purchased from Irish Eyes Garden Seeds about 20 years ago by a small organic farmer in Viroqua, WI. It was given to other local select experienced garlic growers that have grown it since. They have watched it change through the years growing in our region, but are fascinated with this garlic. When we first received it at Keene Garlic 8 years ago, it looked like Asiatic Korean Red with a satin wrapper. Since then, it has changed in our region to appear more like a purple stripe, but the bulbs grow so large with most of them growing jumbo in size annually. It is loved by garlic growers due to its multiplication factor and large consistent size, and phenomenal flavor. Hesitant to call it as a true Korean Red since it seems to have changed in our region, we are calling it Wisconsin Korean Red.
Storage: Longer into spring.
