SUN AND HUMIDITY
Harvesting takes place in the coolest hours of the day: early in the morning or in the evening, so that the leaves are moist to facilitate the manual work of intertwining the bulbs to form the traditional "Trizza".
The braids can group up to 100 bulbs and are hung on balconies, warehouses, or outdoors near house doors.
As per ancient traditions, we pack the Red Garlic of Nubia in braids of different sizes and in packs of three to six heads.
SLOW FOOD PRESIDIO
Passion and dedication are the basis of our cultivation of the Red Garlic of Nubia, which in 2002 obtained the recognition of a Slow Food Presidium.
In 2008, the canestrino received the packaging award as an eco-sustainable and environmentally friendly package.
