PRE-ORDER GARLIC BULBS WILL SHIP AFTER SEPTEMBER 1, 2019 Garlic can be shipped to U.S. customers only except northern Idaho.

(Hardneck) Very Rare. Collected in 2009 from an open air market in the seaside town of Essaouira, Morocco. Creole variety with a lot of heat and good keeping ability. It came from the Moors to Spain. Hardneck variety that will produce a scape.

 

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:

We've been growing this Moroccan Creole for 3 years now on our little farm in New Mexico. Incredibly easy to grow and the scapes are an early treat. We ferment the scapes to get a more delicate garlic flavor in milder dishes. Then there's the garlic itself. The cloves are smaller than other varieties we've grown but the powerful garlic flavor and aroma cannot be beat. This garlic has been a staple of our garden for 3 years and will continue into the future. Zone: 6b

Review:

I planted in December and harvested in late May, probably a little bit late. The heads were huge for the most part and the cloves are wrapped in pretty red wrappers. Being a hardneck variety, it's easy to peel. Strong spicy flavor. I got a huge harvest even after they received a bit of neglect. I'll plant these again.

Review:

Absolutely incredible garlic. Planted in late September and they grew all winter long here in NC. Even when the gargen was under a solid 4 or 5 inches of snow, you could see little green leaves of garlic basking in the weather. The bulbs grew very well and produced EXCELLENT garlic. I find the flavor not too spicy but very garlicy. I love to slow roast them in olive oil and they get so mild and sweet, it's almost like some weird candy. My only complaint would be that it has very irregular growth. Some bunches were a very nice size, other had a dozen bulbs the size of a pea. But I'm planting again, so I guess it's not that big of a complaint...

Review:

This is my favorite garlic variety so far. The color is just gorgeous, the garlic is spicy raw but still edible and they were easy to grow. We had a really cold winter last year, down to -15F (even though USDA says we're zone 6) and they performed great. I got them in the ground later than I wanted in early November (usually I go for early to mid-October) because of the warm fall weather, so the year was just weird. That didn't seem to be a problem. They were the first of my garlic to come up and the scapes were delicious in spring. I'll be growing these for years to come. I'm even thinking about growing extra for the farmers market next year.
