Please note, as I shift gears to focus on two final festivals, all new orders will be shipped on October 4th at the soonest, and October 11th at the latest! Only garlic currently in stock is pre-busted cloves of Pskem River (click banner here), or pre-busted Shandong Purple (find in the Asiatic family). Thanks!

Vietnamese Red bulbs. An heirloom Rocambole from Vietnam, ultimately from France.

Vietnamese Red

Regular price $10.00 Sale

A very upright habit plant, and the leaves almost split symmetrically off the pseudostem. A consistent yielder with great flavor to perk up your winter dishes. I’ve been told it’s definitely a French Rocambole brought over during colonization, yet it is often sold as a Purple Stripe (and in such contexts, relabeled Vietnamese Purple).

Interesting to note they booted the colonizers out but definitely kept this excellent garlic. It's just that good. Grab some for making unrivalled banh mi.
