PRE-ORDER GARLIC BULBS WILL SHIP AFTER SEPTEMBER 1, 2017 Garlic can be shipped to U.S. customers only except northern Idaho.

 

(Softneck) Very Rare. This is a big, pearly-pink Artichoke variety that was found growing in an old Santa Fe garden in 1998. It originally had very small cloves the size of sunflower seeds and it is now our biggest softneck garlic. We have sent it to growers across the country and it seems to grow well in both coastal and cold regions – grower Paul Parma in Southern California said he'd never seen a garlic so huge. It has a rich, classic Italian flavor.

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.

Review:

Planted in September in Boise, harvested mid-July. Large uniform bulbs free of mold or mildew. Began to grow well from the start. We had a horrible winter with tons of snow and rain and these bulbs came through wonderfully. We will definitely plant again.

Review:

I've been trying various varieties and methods to grow garlic in the warm winters of Texas for years and this was my very first success. I started by vernalizing the bulbs in the refrigerator through September and October, and then mulched heavily on planting. In early June when the leaves started dying back, I dug up the biggest heads of garlic I've ever seen. They're delicious! I'm so happy to have found this variety!

Review:

So I planted a 4ftx4ft garden bed full of organic soil and ammendments and they started off great! They took about a month to sprout (planted in late Sept) and grew as expected. Springtime rolls around and they start getting a little rust. By the time harvest time was coming, the rust was really everywhere and some crazy black aphids had taken home all over the crop. (These aphids couldn't be killed by the way-tried soapy water, spraying hard etc every few days...all the tricks that always work easily. I also have tons of Lady bugs) July comes around and the garlic looks terrible and I see some garlic starting to get soft under ground. I hold off all watering for another few weeks and pull them out. Heads were small, some rotten and a few good ones. Out of a potential harvest of 60 bulbs, I got about 5. I pulled more than that, but they also didn't cure right. I'm not sure if this garlic was appropriate for my region and will be trying something different this year.

Review:

I have not grown it yet but wonder why the bulbs were so small when you started and now they grow so large. I may recommend this to a friend.
