Navatria (S11 Ivan1/S15 A) Ted Meredith and i retained three lines from the original seeds given to us by Ivan Buddenhagen. One of those, the above listed Navistar, is a distinctive garlic and TGS was collected resulting in a number of progeny. While most were discarded, one shone brightest around that star. This garlic has 6-8 tightly configured cloves on bulbs with more solid and vibrant purple coloration; more resembling a Marbled than its Purple Stripe parent. It’s larger and considerably spicier too but features similar good storage: well into February. It too has yield seed and we eagerly await to see what moon come to revolve around the gas giant Navatria.
