Garlic Flowers? Yes! We now carry several varieties of flowering alliums (not edible.) The hardneck and Elephant varieties indeed produce flowers. They are both decorative - and edible. Garlic is a member of the allium family which is famous for its blooms. And the many varieties of garlic have an amazing variety of pods (scapes), the edible stage before the full flowering. The Elephant garlic produce a large (2-3 inches) ball of small purple flowers. The mysterious snake-curled scapes of the hardneck varieties, especially the Rocamboles, are both decorative and edible. The long-stemmed scapes, often up to 3 feet tall, have long been a favorite for floral designers in Japan.
|The Garlic Store is now pleased to make them more available in the U.S. The flowers are long lasting, often a week or more. We can provide long stemmed flowers to florists and designers during a period that generally lasts from mid-June into mid-July. We can also package garlic scapes (the edible pods) for restaurants.
