The current stock is ideal seed garlic (over supply). The purple streaked bulbs typically have eight to twelve large, tan cloves. It peels easily and stores up to 4-6 months. It is a Rocambole. It is generally a vigorous grower with large foliage that is dark green and results in a pretty good sized bulb. Being a Rocambole garlic, its flavor is very strong, hot, and spicy and sticks around for a long time. It has the deep, rich, complex flavor of gourmet garlic. From a grower's perspective, it grows well in cold winter areas, but does poorly in warm winter areas.
All garlic is grown in raised beds using hand tools and manual labor. No chemical fertilizers or pesticides are used. Soil fertility is maintained by promoting soil life and organic matter.
