Asiatic types are a diverse group of early maturing hard necks, usually producing a u-shaped scape and an extra-long beak, up to 18” long in some varieties. This type tends to be hot when raw, sometimes amazingly so. They typically have 6-10 cloves per bulb, with thick white bulb wrappers. We’ve been expanding our varieties of this type, and they’re rapidly becoming our favorites, due to their interesting diversity and great flavor.

The varieties we have in this type tend to emerge late in the fall, after all our others, allowing for flaming the bed for fall weeds before shoots come up. They mature mid-season.
