Early, earlier, earliest! Chinese Pink garlic is typically the first variety of the season, ready to harvest in June (sometimes even late May), when you've run out of last year's home-grown and are itching for the good stuff. Great big, glossy, pink bulbs are pretty enough to grow for just their looks, but Chinese Pink holds it's own in the flavor department. Mellow, with just the right amount of zip, this garlic is the one to reach for when making garlic bread, honey garlic ribs, garlic butter corn on the cob, or stir fried greens with garlic and eggs. Bulbs typically have 7 to 9 cloves. This super early variety stores 4 to 5 months, can be relied on to produce delicious garlic scapes in the spring and is in short supply this season. Snag yours now.
