Generation Farms adds garlic to offerings

Generation Farms, Vidalia, Ga., is adding white and purple garlic to its line of fruits and vegetables.

The garlic is available in net bags, either three or five bulbs per bag with wineglass labels, and in 30-pound bulk cartons. Custom packaging for retailers is also available, according to a news release.

"The current supply is beautiful, with firm heads, and ready for immediate sale and consumption," Brian Stanley, director of sales, said in a news release.
"We’re sourcing from exclusive grower relationships in Spain, Argentina, Peru and Mexico to ensure a steady, year-round supply of white and purple premium garlic," he said.

Containers will be arriving at East Coast ports.

The less common purple garlic, which has a stronger scent and taste, is popular with gourmet chefs and food aficionados, according to the release.
Generation Farms grows and markets Vidalia onions, watermelons, squash and other fruits and vegetables.
