Asian Tempest Garlic
Asian Tempest is an Asiatic garlic that was brought to Canada from South Korea.
It's ready earlier in the season, well before many other varieties.
Raw the flavour is hot, intense and spicy. Cooking evolves the flavour so it becomes sweet and spicy.
Delicious when baked.
The bulbs have a slightly flattened teardrop shape with purple striping on the wrappers. There are usually 5 to 7 plump cloves in each. The cloves are beautiful deep-violet with golden streaks.
