Allium sativum


1/4 lb
Culinary (Small bulbs)
Certified Organic

Very strong raw garlic flavor (wahoo!) - flavor lingers and sweetens in your mouth ending on a nutty note. Reported to be very high in Allicin which is known for its many healing properties - eat it raw for the most health benefits. We like it raw in pesto and crushing it into hot soup, especially miso soup. We also love to cook spicy garlic to calm its punch - roasted, stir fries, stews or practically in anything! Stores very well for a hardneck type keeping into spring. Aka Red Elephant garlic. This Porcelain (hardneck) type averages 4 to 6 large easy to peel cloves per bulb.

Specs: Type: Porcelain (Hardneck); 4-6 large cloves per bulb. Approx. 6-8 bulbs per pound and 72-96 cloves per lb. Plants 36-48 linear feet at 6” spacing.

Garlic is planted in the fall, after the first light frost but before the ground freezes, usually in late October or November. Overwintering (exposure to cold) is essential for bulb development. Garlic is a heavy feeder, so plant in fertile, well-drained soil rich in organic matter and nutrients. Keep bulbs intact until you are ready to plant them, then break up into individual cloves leaving clove skins intact. Plant cloves about 2" deep into the soil, 6-8" apart in rows spaced 12" apart. The tapered end of the clove should point up, and the flatter end with the attachment point should point down. Covering the soil with a layer of mulch (straw, oak leaves) helps suppress weeds, retain moisture, and fertilizes the soil. Do not remove the mulch in the spring. Keep well weeded for best results as garlic does not compete well against weeds. Garlic will benefit from regular watering (at least 30 minutes 2x per week).
