Bangkok Seed Garlic


Hardneck Turban type

Bangkok is the only Turban type of garlic we have grown repeatedly. As a Turban, it is delightfully different from all other garlic types. Plants leaf out much more quickly after planting in the fall, and continue this accelerated growth all the way through the season, maturing almost a month earlier than the silverskin types. Leaves are much less fibrous than other types of garlic making it a good candidate for green garlic. Wrappers are white with some purple streaking, and cloves are plump with pink wrappers. Heat is only moderate. This variety was picked up many years ago at a market in Bangkok, Thailand.

Minimum bulb size for our seed garlic is 2 inches across. Average 5-8 bulbs per pound.

Seed grown by Avram Drucker of Garlicana in Tiller, Oregon.

Separate cloves but do not peel. Plant each clove 2” deep, blunt end down, in mid-October. Space plants 6-8” apart in rows 1’ apart. Apply extra fertilizer in March.

Harvest bulbs in mid-July, when roughly 1⁄2 of the leaves are still green. Brush soil off of roots & hang in well-ventilated, shady spot to cure.

Select largest bulbs for seed to ensure large cloves the following year & eat the rest!
