We love this variety for its eye-poppingly beautiful purple hue, pungent flavor, and huge bulb size. Purple Glazer is our #1 purple stripe variety because it produces consistently high yields and shows resistance to rust. And boy does it catch people's eye at the farmer's market. Large cloves are easy to peel.
