A true medium hardneck garlic that is sweet when roasted. The garlic gourmet needs to try this one and save some for planting

Persian Star is a perhaps the most beautiful of the standard group of Purple Stripes with its thick white bulb wrappers that are streaked with purple as you peel away the outer wrappers. When the wrappers are all peeled away the clove covers with their distinctive long sharp points resemble an eight point star, hence their name.They apparently originated in Uzbekistan, one of those central Asian Islamic republics that were once part of the USSR. They are a full flavored garlic with only a small bite to them and are more mellow than hot as are most other standard Purple Stripes. They're pretty enough to be used as a centerpiece.
