Russian Red is a favourite with its flaming hot warmth, but savory lingering flavour. It shares parts of its hottest personality when raw and its smoother side when cooked, while still retaining its strong garlicky flavour. This garlic would make a wounderful HOT Salsa! The bulbs are medium to large in size. Stores well for 5 - 8 months. We acquired our starter bulbs in Westwold, British Columbia.
