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. 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:

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.

What are the pros? Tastes great. Produces Scapes

What are the cons? Doesnt seem to grow in my area

Review:

I planted these (along with Inchelium Red) in the Fall of 2015. I harvested the scapes the following summer and they were great. When I dug the bulbs though I wasn't too impressed, especially compared to the Inchelium Red. They were quite small and I lost a lot (planted 60 cloves - harvested 33 bulbs. Compared to 55 planted and 47 harvested of the Inchelium Red). These were grown in the garden with just a heavy layer of mulched leaves over them. There were a LOT of weeds all around them so that may have hindered them. Not too many weeds in the garlic bed though. I didn't water once. Didn't need to with the leaf mulch. Fall of 2016 I planted the biggest bulbs from each from what I harvested the year before. I harvested 63 Inchelium Reds and 36 Creoles. The reds are as big or bigger than I remember from the year before and the creoles are smaller. These were planted under 5 or 6 inches of mulch. I didn't water once and pulled maybe 10 weeds over the year.

Review:

We grew this for the first time for harvest this year. Our yield was almost 100%. We love the taste and wanted to expand our crop for this next year's harvest so I kept back some of the best looking bulbs and planted almost double. The clove peels easily for use, very flavorful cloves. I would absolutely recommend planting this garlic if you like a garlic with a little heat to it.

What are the pros? fantastic flavor

What are the cons? Small heads

Review:

First year growing. The heads are small but the flavor is outstanding.....pungent and unctuous in the best possible way. We roasted some and it was amazingly creamy. Very easy to grow in our climate. Tossed it in the garden, covered with straw and watered. We will be planting 3 times as much this fall.

Review:

We planted 1/2 pound of this last September. we just pulled it up and are kicking ourselves for not planting more. It looked really puny and like it wasn't going to work out, then as soon as it warmed up it took off and man it tastes so good! they put out lovely large scapes that we used in pesto. the cloves are large and spicy. will be planting triple this year
