We have material from this, but are awaiting the process of new plant health regulations in order to be able to import it again if possible. Feel free to register your interest, but this will probably not be clarified until 2025 at the earliest.

This has been in circulation in the environment within and around the association KVANN, and we have it through it. We have test grown it, but not spread it further because it is unclear whether it has come to the association with a plant health certificate.

We understand and very much agree with the plant health considerations, but think we need to get a better system, because imports via traveling or via the Internet take place on a large scale and pose a great danger of the introduction of pests. At the same time, we need as many species and varieties as possible to build the ecologically based food security system of the future. Therefore, in the autumn of 2023, we have taken the initiative for the (plant health) website. Read more here.


The cultivar is hardy and gives good yields in Maridalen in Oslo.


Allium sativum L.



Garlic evolved in central Asia, and is found in two main groups:

  • hardneck which forms top sets
  • softneck which does not form a top sets, but often one or more “intermediate sets” in the middle of the stem if the plant is allowed to stand for a long time

Wikipedia writes (as of Nov-23) that hardneck is an accepted botanical variety, but according to GBIF it is now included under Allium sativum L., and the name Allium sativum var. ophioscorodon (Link) Döll has synonym status. That softneck is considered an accepted variety is, however, correct: Allium sativum var. sativum L. The article further mentions Allium longicuspis Regel as the wild form, but it is now also included under Allium sativum L.
