Lorz Italian Artichoke- Ark of Taste Heirloom!

2.00

Lorz Italian Artichoke is one of only three garlic varieties listed in Slow Food's Ark of Taste, a catalog of delicious foods facing extinction. Slow Food has been instrumental in educating the food-eating and food-growing community about the importance of biodiversity as an essential tool in creating a healthy environment and defending our future against climate change. We grow Lorz Italian and the two other Ark of Taste garlic varieties in support of Slow Food's mission. We want to preserve diverse garlic genes.

Artichoke varieties are large softnecks that grow easily and multiply quickly.  Their chalky feeling, irregular size, and shaped cloves (12-25) are arranged in a random pattern with 2-5 clove layers.  Artichokes mature earlier than most hardnecks and are extremely long storing, often lasting through spring.
