Picardy Wight garlic is a softneck garlic originating from the province of Picardy in northern France and is known for its fierce flavor, great keeping, and ease of cultivation in cooler, wetter climates like ours. If you like your garlic strong, then this is the variety for you!
Adapted to cooler and wetter conditions, Picardy Wight garlic will grow anywhere in the UK that has proved a challenge to other garlic. In northern France it is plaited and smoked due to its longevity and superior, strong flavour. Beautiful with its distinct pinkish hue, Picardy Wight is an excellent braiding garlic and will store well long past April if kept cool and dry.
Can be planted in the autumn but better planted in the spring.
