Umbels and bulbs



Allium Sativum Ophioscorodon

Personality profile: Casual and saucy, this baby prefers to be called "Oozbeck," and is often seen behind the wheel of a BMW convertible, wind whipping its silk scarf trailing behind and the open road stretched into infinity. Long lasting flavor and great accompaniment to any dish.

Cloves: Averages 8-12 cloves.

Bulbils: 10-50 medium sized bulbils per umbel that grow to marble sized rounds or small bulbs the first year and small to mid sized cloved bulbs in the second.

Growing: Late emergence and late harvest. The plant structure itself is a bit smaller than what we find with Porcelains and Marbled Purple, though the leaves are more broad, which is typical of a Rocambole.

Harvest: May harvest a bit later in the season. Watch for the tell-tale sign of browning in the lower leaves.

Storage: Expect 3 months.
