Vietnamese Red garlic is a gentle, creamy option, perfect for enhancing the flavor of your creations without overpowering. Easily digested, this hardneck variety has a sweetness and buttery richness that shines when roasted; delicious spread on crusty bread. Typically yields 10 to 12 cloves per bulb. Vietnamese Red keeps well and is a hardneck that produces nicely in both northern and southern (to zone 8) gardens.
