A D.T. Brown Exclusive... Czechmate is an exotic hardneck garlic originating from Moravia in the Czech Republic. Trialled and bred by the team from the world renowned Garlic Farm on the Isle of Wight, it’s an autumn planting variety which is best planted in October but before January at the latest.

Czechmate develops a glazed purple skin which thinly veils a beautifully striped purple bulb underneath, containing perfectly formed large, plump purple cloves packed tightly around a hardneck stem. Hot and spicy, it delivers a stronger flavour than most other UK garlics and has pronounced heat which is excellent for creating full flavoured dishes, an essential ingredient for Asian and Mediterranean cuisine. A vigorous variety, it has intermediate rust resistance.

Czechmate is perfect for autumn planting – tried and tested, we know that it performs well. We choose only the finest quality bulbs. Each year we work with our friends at the Garlic Farm, one of the world’s leading garlic farms, and all of our garlic is sourced from them ensuring we always supply superior top quality garlic from expert growers.

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.
