Mexican Pearl

Classified as the "Creole type" garlic with origins in Spain. Mexican Pearl hails from the Sonora area of Mexico. This very productive variety behaves like a softneck in southern climates and like a hardneck in northern climates. The handsome heads get good protection from their attractive pearly white wrapper leaves; inside you'll find big, plump, creamy-colored cloves.

When used raw, Mexican Pearl is distinctively full flavored, warm and spicy, but roasted or used in cooked dishes, its flavor mellows, becomes more nutty and sweetens. It's wonderful to use in slow cooked dishes such as soups, stews, beans, roasting meat or poultry dishes. Or simply cut the top off a whole head to slowly roast to succulent perfection.

While it will grow happily all over the country, we particularly recommend Mexican Pearl for southern climates where it can take intense direct sun better than most other varieties.
