Marbled Purple Stripes are beautiful garlics, with purple on both bulb and clove wrappers. They typically have 8-12 cloves per bulb, which are elongated, crescent-shaped and fairly easy-peel. Storage is good, but not as long as Creoles and Silverskins. Their flavor is considered excellent, especially when roasted. Marbled Purple stripes also produce nice 3/4-curled scapes, for spring treats while waiting for the garlic to size up.
