A thrifty plant, looks small in the garden but is a reliable producer of 1.2 to 1.6 ounce bulbs that keep well. Bogatyr has a strange tendency to grow a late-stage Siamese twin in a long season, often a quarter of the population will show this tendency. A smaller second bulb forms on the side and fully develops its own set of cloves. For seed-saving and keeping, Bogatyr is a self-reliance win. Won’t win a beauty contest but wins on thrift and disease resistance.
