METECHI (Marbled Purple Stripe)

$20.00Price

Metechi Garlic has been described as GREAT BULBS of FIRE.  It is a stunning hardneck garlic, that does well in most climates, and does exceptionally well in climates with cold winters.  Metechi is one of the hotter varieties of garlic available.  It is fiery hot when eaten raw, though when sautéed,  Metechi delivers robust garlic flavor along with a sharp bite. Cooking will tone down the heat, while still holding that big garlic taste.

 

This variety has thick, white-wrapped bulbs that hold 4-6 bulky cloves wrapped in purple, blushed skin with maroon accents.  Marbled Purple Striped Metechi produces beautifully colored, firm bulbs. There are few cloves to a bulb, but they are very large and fat with blushed and lined skins. 

 

GroEat Garlic is shipped in the fall, typically after September, depending on the season and the variety. Quantities are limited; order early for best availability. Sorry, not available to Idaho or Canada.

  • GROWING INFORMATION

    Metechi has been one of the best growing garlic in our farm every year we have grown it. Its foliage is a deep dark green with a definite purplish haze, and a large, green leaves.

    Metechi is planted in the fall, soon after the first frost and a few weeks before the first hard frost.  The seed garlic bulbs should be taken apart into separate cloves not long before planting. Hardneck garlic requires vernalization (exposed to a period of cold temperatures) before or after planting. Plant cloves two inches deep, the pointed side up.  Garlic does best with a loose soil with very good drainage and a pH of 7.0 optimum. This garlic also requires full sun.  Avoid planting these in areas that are wet or damp.  Plant in mounded rows or a raised beds with well-drained soil.  Avoid clay soil.
