Garlic - Dunganski Purple Stripe (2 Bulbs)

Allium sativum
NOT to WA & TAS

Discover the exceptional Dunganski garlic variety, known for thriving in cool to cold climates similar to those of its Uzbekistan origins. This rare garlic type stands out with its robustly vibrant colours and intensifying flavours, underscoring its unique origin.

Key Features:
- Category: Standard Purple Stripe, a sub-group renowned for its hardy nature.
- Garlic Class: Hardneck, characterized by its strong tendency to bolt and consistently produce a scape.
- Storage Potential: Exhibits a medium storage life ranging from 7 to 9 months, ensuring you can enjoy its distinct taste for an extended period.
Planting & Harvest Timing: Dunganski follows a late-season cycle for both planting and harvesting, making it a jewel to await.
- Heat Profile: Offers a balanced medium heat, adding just the right kick to your dishes.
- Flavor Description: Transforms in the kitchen to reveal a lovely nutty taste when cooked or sautéed, making it a versatile addition to your culinary repertoire.
- Clove Count: Each bulb houses 9 to 12 cloves, promising plentiful usage in full dishes or as a subtle flavour enhancer.

Dunganski garlic is an extraordinary choice for chefs and home cooks alike. It aims to infuse dishes with a moderate heat and a rich, nutty essence that only elevates upon cooking.

How to Grow Garlic:

  1. Spacing Your Garlic: Begin by spacing your cloves around 15cm apart. Ensure the sharp end, or the "pointy tip," faces upwards. This positioning encourages straight growth.
  2. Depth Matters: Gently plant each clove about 25mm beneath the soil's surface. This depth provides enough coverage without burying the cloves too deep.
  3. Feeding Your Garlic: Avoid heavy feeding at the start. After growing your garlic for six weeks, it's time for a little boost. Apply a light spray of liquid fertilizer once a month. Remember, a little goes a long way!
  4. Watering Tips: Garlic prefers moist soil but despises waterlogged conditions. Ensure your garden bed allows for good drainage and avoid overwatering.
  5. Ideal Locations: For those living in New South Wales, Victoria, or South Australia, you're in luck! These regions offer the perfect climate for growing robust garlic.
  6. Storing Your Harvest: Once your garlic is harvested, it needs a proper storage spot. Please keep it in a cool, well-ventilated space, away from the harsh rays of direct sunlight. Proper storage can keep your garlic fresh for 5 to 6 months.

            • Shipping to Western Australia:

            An additional $6 fee applies to cover quarantine inspection fees. All WA seed orders are subject to Quarantine WA inspection, which may result in delays beyond our control. For more information, please refer quarantine policy.

            • Shipping to Tasmania:

            An additional $3 fee covers Biosecurity Tasmania paperwork—maximum 1kg per seed line item. Biosecurity Tasmania restrictions apply.

             

            WA order dispatch time: 

            WA orders are packed once a week on Wednesday and shipped out on Thursday. To ensure that your orders are processed and shipped out each Thursday, please place them before midnight (AEDT - Sydney time) on Tuesday. This applies no matter whether Express Post service is chosen for the order.

            WA orders go to the Quarantine WA office at Perth Airport for inspection before being sent to your shipping address by the Quarantine Officers. Your tracking number will be activated once the inspection is complete, which may take up to 10 business days after we have packed and dispatched your order.

            The tracking number will stay in a 'Pending' status until Quarantine Officers have inspected your shipment at Perth Airport.

            Depending on the postal service you pay for the order, it will generally take an additional 1 to 5 business days for your shipment to arrive from Perth Airport to your address within WA. However, please note that delays beyond our control may occasionally occur. 

            Signature on delivery: An additional $2.95 applies if you require a signature on delivery service. If you haven't requested a signature, the postie will check for a safe place or letterbox (if it fits) to leave your item. They'll take it to the Post Office for collection if a safe place can't be found. 

            No Discount on Postage:  Our special discount event means seeds are available at discounted prices. However, postage costs remain the same, i.e. there won't be any discount on the postage costs - so check out our postage rate table to find out exactly how much it will cost before you stock up on your favourites!
