Marbled Purple Stripes are another independent offshoot of garlic, not a mere subcategory of Purple Stripes! They're named for the more marbled nature of their splotchy colorations of purples and blues. Milder than Glazed or regular Purple Stripes, and with 4 to 7 cloves being more common, you'd maybe mistake them for a Porcelain yet their plant structures are on the smaller side. Their heritage clusters heavily in Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Very cold hardy and disease resistant.
