German Red Garlic
Our garlic is given organic TLC from start to finish! We have hand selected our planting stock for the last 8 years, and the results are larger bulbs, and beautiful color.
German Red is a Rocambole garlic, which is a stiff-neck type. Most bulbs are not as large as Music, but it has more cloves per bulb. Each clove is fairly large, and easy to peel. It is an excellent keeper. Bulbs will stay firm into June most years, if stored under ideal conditions, which means "cool and dry".
The flavor is spicier than Music, but not overpowering. It grows well in colder areas of the country. It grows best in rich, loamy soil, under a straw mulch. For those interested in growing, ask for the grower's fact sheet.
The bulbs sold as "seed stock" are selected for their size, wrapper development and perfection. Starting with larger cloves results in larger bulbs, as long as the other parameters for growing are met. Orders will contain a range of large bulbs.
"Culinary" bulbs are smaller in size, and may be a bit less perfect looking, and are sold loose. They are viable, if you want to try growing them.
Please, never refrigerate garlic![
