Growing and harvesting
Garlic chives only need 3 to 6 weeks to grow from seed to plant. Depending on the circumstances (water, heat and sunlight), this period can last up to 3 months. Once the crop has reached the correct height, machetes are used to harvest garlic chives.
Packed in plastic crates, the herbs are sent to the packing area to be cooled down. Then the herbs are checked for quality and length. Bunching is done customer-specific, for example, in bunches of 10 grams. The herb bunches arrive at Nature's Pride packed in boxes.
Loose per package of 1 kg
Your consumer will immediately recognise the quality by the EAT ME label. Of course, packaging with a private label is also possible. Ask our account managers about the possibilities.
Recipes & preparation tips
One of the pleasant features of garlic chives is that the taste is a good substitute for authentic garlic, but that there is no lingering smell after eating. This makes it an excellent ingredient in an alternative garlic sauce. Herb butter is another dish in which the soft onion flavour stands out. To process the herb, it is sufficient to rinse, then pat dry and snip with scissors.
