Very nice, some good looking Creoles there Shrink-wrapped, just remember that if you decide to do a raw tasting to eat some blueberries between varieties, they clean the palate very effectively.

Those are a nice size - lucky you! I hear that it is impossible to get large bulbs from creoles in the north. I am growing one though - Lautrec - and it's pretty enough, I won't mind if they're a little small. I hear they're good tasting as well, what do you think so far?

Thanks all! I've been trying to grow Creoles of a decent size for about four years. I've only used the very tinest so far, and didn't label them. I ate them as part of something else, and can't really say much about them. I'm still curing the majority.

Have not been in here in a long time, retire from garlic farming. The only way I have ever gotten size on creoles here in southern BC Canada is to spring plant them.
