Bred by Avram Drucker of Garlicana Farm, Anarres is one of the many results of his years of work in true garlic seed production (see more about true seed production on his website here, will open a new window in your browser). Further description to come as I see how it grows in my soil and does in the kitchen- meanwhile, check out Avram's site to learn more about it, and his work.
It currently averages 7-10 cloves per bulb in my soils, kitchen tests pending, got a backlog of bulbs to test this year!
Named for the moon Anarres where idealistic anarcho-syndicalists run the show, in the book The Dispossessed by Ursula Le Guin. I read the book after buying the garlic, to connect more deeply with the soul of Anarres garlic. I recommend the same. The garlic is austere, enduring, and egalitarian in its outlook.
