PRE-ORDER GARLIC BULBS WILL SHIP AFTER SEPTEMBER 1, 2018 Garlic can be shipped to U.S. customers only except northern Idaho.

(Hardneck) Very Rare. This Rocambole garlic came to the South West with the early Spanish settlers in the mountain valleys of northern New Mexico. This garlic was found growing wild (naturalized) along the “acequia” (irrigation ditch) in a small village at 8,000 ft in the Sangre de Cristo mountains. In 2001, the postmistress in Chamisal stated that garlic had been growing there since her grandfather was a boy. Today, its bulbs reach up to 3 inches.

 

Plant individual garlic cloves in the fall, prior to the ground freezing, in well-prepared beds of soil that is rich in organic matter. Plant cloves 1 to 2 inches deep about 8 inches apart making sure that the tip of the clove is pointing up and the footprint of the root is down. In northern climates it may be necessary to cover with mulch prior to the hard freezes of winter and then uncover in spring. Provide adequate irrigation and weed control in order to achieve maximum bulb size. Harvest scapes when they have made one full curl and before becoming erect (can still be used erect however the texture is tougher). Garlic is ready for harvesting when the bulbs are completely filled out and plump. Watch for the bottom two leaves to brown and die back and for the rest of the plant to begin to yellow. Test dig a few bulbs to determine if crop is ready. Discontinue irrigation for about two weeks prior to harvest. Do not pull garlic up by the stalk but lift the garlic by digging with a fork or shovel. Harvested garlic should be spread out or hung away from direct sunlight for two to three weeks to cure (air conditioned location is okay). Make sure curing bulbs have adequate air circulation and are not piled atop of one another.

What are the pros? Many cloves in an order

What are the cons? Twin cloves in one wrapper

Review:

I was a little skeptical of these because the plants were much shorter than my other garlic plants. They ended up being very nice sized heads though, there were about 8-10 cloves per head so the cloves are smaller than Music, Estonian Red or Russian Red. You get a lot of cloves for 1/2 lb order. I ended up just using some of it in my kitchen because I didn't have enough room to plant it all. The only thing that was a little odd to me, was that some had 2 cloves inside one paper wrapper. I wasn't sure what to do with those. I planted a few and ended up with two garlic plants and two heads of garlic. One bigger one and one small one. Really not a problem. It has nice flavor and was fun to grow, and is great if you want a lot of plants for your investment.

Review:

First time planting garlic now I'm hooked because of this one! I grew this and Inchelium Red this one had nice size cloves and tasted great. I will definitely be keeping it around while I explore more types of garlic. If you have never planted garlic before I found it to be one of the easiest plants I've grown.

Review:

This garlic is great! Of the 1/2 lb I ordered, I think only one clove failed to germinate in the spring. Planted in early October and had a late June harvest (we had an unusually early and warm spring). The soil it was planted in wasn't particularly great soil. Other root vegetables didn't do super well in this bed, but the garlic had no trouble. Some of the bulbs were a bit small, but I think those were undersized cloves to begin with. Many of the bulbs were standard sized heads for heirloom garlic. Definitely going to be saving a few heads of this and planting again in a few months!

Review:

I live in the Piedmont region of nc and we have a lot of heat and humidity. I have now grown this for two years and have had no problems. Harvest is 1st week of July and have large heads and great flavor. Keeps for a year and I will continue to grow this variety. I always plant in mid November and sprinkle worm castings in early to mid May.

Review:

We tried two garlic varities; this one performed well enough, however, I think the bulbs would have been larger had I remembered to cut off the ramps in early spring. Nice tight bulbs, good color and flavor. Plenty of large cloves to continue planting next year. Boise had a horrible 2016-2017 winter with TONS of snow ice and rain well into May. These bulbs didn't seem to suffer in the least! Also loved K's Backyard garlic.
