Sometimes we're able to get special items from our farmers. . . . case in point, (literally) . . . giant Nir paperwhite bulbs by the case. Our paperwhite farmer, who we believe is one of the best in the world, had a very good year with his Nir crop. So good, in fact, that his field produced some giant bulbs, 19+ centimeters in circumference, an almost unheard of size and likely the largest in the US market.
With more flower stems per bulb and a larger number of florets per stem, these paperwhites are excellent for indoor forcing or garden use. Grow these next to any garden center stock and you'll see the difference. If you're nuts about paperwhites, want to give them as gifts or are planning a fall fundraiser, these will beat the pants off other options. Since they come to us in sturdy plastic bulb crates, which are very useful around the house, we'll ship them out in these cases, as an extra little bonus.
We don't have this size, at this price, available every fall but while we do have them, we're thrilled to share the wealth. Don't let the opportunity slip by.
