Asian Tempest is one of the hottest hard neck garlics available. If you are after a hot garlic, this one is for you!
One taster's description, "When you first bite into a clove suddenly your entire mouth seems to explode in flames, your face turns red and you break out in an instant heavy sweat. The fire rages hotter and hotter for about 30-45 seconds and you begin to wonder what to do about it, then it begins to gently dissipate and is almost gone at the end of one minute leaving you to discover the rich earthy garlicness hiding behind the heat. It took 30-40 minutes for the hair on the back of my neck to dry - just from half of a clove"
This is an Asiatic variety which grows incredibly well for us in our zone 4-5 garden.
Asian Tempest in particularly high in Allicin which makes it an excellent medicinal garlic. Its hotness makes it an unbeatable insecticide garlic.
All of our garlic is naturally grown. We use no chemical fertilizers, pesticides or weed killers. Our soil is fertilized with alpaca compost every year. Our weed killer is me. I hand weed all of the garlic several times a year. We also use hay as mulch to retain water and keep weeds down.
Our garlic is as natural as it comes. We hand plant each clove. We hand pick weeds. We "pop" the scapes off by hand. We harvest by hand. John meticulously dries and cleans each clove individually. . . you guessed it . . .by hand! No use of any chemicals and even very little use of any machinery make our garlic good not only for you, but for the environment as well!
You will find our garlic to be some of the cleanest around. We sell our garlic in half pound mesh bags with the names of the garlic clearly identified. We have many repeat customers because our garlic is big, clean and stores and plants well.
