Orchard Purple Stripe
A variety I acquired from a Bennington Vermont Garlic Fest vendor years and years ago. They had acquired this Purple Stripe from some friends of theirs operating an orchard. Its exact Eurasian origins unknown, I've named it Orchard Purple Stripe. It has been consistently productive and remarkable for years. Despite having lost track of its heirloom status, it's such a good grower, I can't give it up! I hope some day that genetic testing will allow me to send out a sample to see where it's ultimately from. In the meanwhile, it must travel with a new name.
