strong heat that mellows deep garlicy flavor sweet & sharp

Often described as "Great Bulbs of Fire," Metechi is deliciously sharp at first, and quite fiery with a medium heat when eaten raw, but it mellows to a milder, sweet finish with a little lingering spice. The flavor holds up well in cooking offering a big, beautiful, bold garlic flavor for your favorite red sauces and salsas.

Metechi's bulbs are medium-small to medium sized, the outer wrappers have beautiful, bright purple striping, and each bulb contains 5–7 medium-sized cloves. The thick clove skins are easy to peel, and the white, creamy cloves are easy to crush, mince and chop. Metechi garlic keeps for up 7–8 months when stored at room temperature in a dry, dark place that has plenty of air circulation.

Quantity Guidelines
12-15 bulbs per pound
Approximately 60–80 cloves per pound

We grow all of our garlic from naturally grown or organic seed, and we never use chemicals at any time during our planting, growing, harvesting or curing processes. The Quantity Guidelines listed above are ESTIMATES to help you decide how much of this garlic variety to order by weight so you can plan for your cooking needs.

Note: Garlic is an agricultural crop that is subject to loss due to conditions beyond our control. This can even occur in the curing stage. We check each bulb before shipping them to you, and if there are any quality issues with our stock, we may need to substitute the variety you want with another, similar variety. We rarely need to do this, but if it does become necessary, we will contact you prior to shipping to discuss your options. Our goal is to get truly great, high quality garlic into your hands while providing personalized customer service that you can trust!
