California Heirloom Garlic
With an origin tracing back to the Piedmont region of Italy, our seed has been selected for it’s robust and consistent flavor profile. When compared to many international varietals, our seed has consistently been proven to have the highest levels of both Brix and Allicin, the essential measurable components of what makes garlic so special. 31% HIGHER BRIX than Chinese garlic, giving our garlic a bold nutty flavor with a creamy finish.
BRIX measures the percentage of solids in plant juice. Higher solids = higher quality = more flavor!
24% MORE ALLICIN than Chinese garlic. In sensory evaluations Monviso® outperforms Chinese garlic in richness and duration in cooking. ALLICIN is the sulphur compound created in garlic when it is crushed or chopped. Allicin gives garlic its flavorful bite and enticing aroma.
