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

(Hardneck) Mid-season. German Red is a full-bodied, strong and spicy rocambole garlic that reliably produces large, satiny white and purple heads. The easy-to-peel cloves are wrapped in fawn colored skins. A widely popular variety that sets the standard for true garlic flavor. Grows particularly well in colder regions of the country. (1/2 Pound Package - about 3 to 4 large bulbs)

 

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? Taste, Easy to grow

What are the cons? Doesn't keep like softneck

Review:

This was my first experiment with planting garlic, and I admit, I was skeptical when I planted my German Red cloves last October. I'm in northern MN, and we spend most of our winter near or below zero degrees F. How could these things survive my raised bed garden? I figured $15 was a cheap experiment if these didn't come up in the spring. But they did come up, and they came up crazy vigorous! Every clove popped up a stalk as soon as the ground thawed. By late June, every stalk had a scape on it (saut? them in butter and toss with pasta and a chopped tomato = a little bowl of heaven), and in early August I dug out 21 beautiful fat bulbs. Each bulb seems to have 8-10 cloves and the taste is fantastic: slightly peppery, definitely garlicky, but not overpowering. The neighbors were seriously impressed that I could plant garlic in the fall and make it live. Ha - plant it and forget it! So easy!

Review:

This is my 1st year growing Garlic. I got these and the Inchelium. The cloves are large, spicy and smell wonderful. They were easy to grow. I did not plant them in the fall (I could not find them in my house, oops) Any way I got them in the ground in early spring and some of the cloves were too dried up. The interesting thing is, they flowered, The Inchelium did not. I am doing some research on that and will try to save the seeds from these and see what I can do. If I have any luck with the seeds I will post again. Just so you know. when I ordered these I got a lot less of the German garlics than I did of the inchelium. Understandable since you buy them by there weight and the inchelium are smaller so I got a bunch of those. I am glad I got the two varieties.
