Belarus is a beautiful Purple Stripe garlic with a rich garlicky flavor and is delightfully mellow but with a little bite when raw. Good variety to pair with delicate dishes. Higher sugars make this a good variety for roasting & baking.
The outer bulb wrappers are white and thick and becoming vertically striped with increasingly more purple stripes the closer to the cloves one gets. The clove covers themselves are a deep reddish purple. If you like a lot of red, you'll love these Purple Stripe garlics. It’s easy to peel with 8-12 dark red skin crescent shaped cloves.
Belarus can be a very prolific garlic in cold winter areas and grows well in states with moderate temps but probably not for extreme southern areas. Harvests early-mid summer - stores through winter.
Approx 60 cloves per pound
Storage: 5-6 months
Garlic used for seed is generally 2" or greater, while eating garlic can be any size.
