Nùbia Red Garlic

This garlic is named after a small village near Paceco, in the province of Trapani. The outer papery layer of the bulbs is pinkish-white, but the skin of the cloves is a deeper reddish pink. Nùbia red garlic has a significantly higher quantity of allicin than other varieties, giving it a particularly strong flavor. The garlic is grown by small-scale farmers using manual techniques and no chemicals. Once harvested, the garlic bulbs are sorted by size and woven into long braids.

Season

Harvested in May and June, dried for consumption throughout the year
