Garlic Caulk Wight -Our tastiest and spiciest garlic yet!
We are really excited about our new hardneck garlic, Caulk Wight, and we’re confident you’ll love it too. Originating from Eastern Europe, this purple skinned hardneck type was selected due to its large and plump cloves, which are easy to peel, and its strong and vigorous habit. It grows particularly well in our relatively soft UK climate, having been trialled successfully in the north and south, but can withstand temperatures down to -20°C. Above the ground, the foliage is a healthy dark green with a wide leaf formation, while underground, the bulbs are encased in tight leaf wrappers, avoiding the pitfall of many hardnecks in our damp climate, of splitting and opening out. Once harvested and dried, the bulbs display beautiful, plump, pink cloves with purple marbling. Enjoy growing and cooking with this special garlic strain.
Garlic Topinky Wight -This variety has proved to be very popular with our customers due to its strong flavour.
Originating from the Czech Republic close to Pilsen and its breweries and so named, as ‘Topinky’ is the Czech name for toasted garlic bread, it packs a real punch and has the strongest and spiciest flavour of any garlic we know of! Works well with a glass of Pilsner too! The attractive, purple striped bulbs are good keepers, and it makes really good garlic bread and adds flavour to rich sauces, stews and casseroles.
Garlic Caulk Wight and Topinky Wight are perfect for autumn planting – tried and tested, and we know that it performs well. We choose only the finest quality bulbs, grown commercially in the UK by one of the world’s leading garlic farms. You should always buy garlic from a reputable source and never plant shop bought, cooking garlic. All of our bulbs are certified as disease and virus free.
