NOTE: Pricing details at bottom of page
Sales will start mid to late August, 2017
Russian Red – Rocambole
Our personal favourite Rocambole, Russian Red has a robust hearty flavour. It tastes very strong when eaten raw. When cooked, it mellows a bit but has a very full bodied taste. A hardy garlic that enjoys the winter in Canada. There are usually 5 or 6 cloves per bulb.
Yugoslavian – Porcelain
Yugoslavian Porcelain is a great choice for Canadian garlic growers, as it is very tolerant of the cold. This garlic has a fairly robust flavour . The cloves are large, with usually four or five cloves per bulb. It is ready for harvest sometime around late July.
Music – Porcelain
Music has beautiful white outer wrappers, with purple inner wrappers. Another hardy variety, great for Canadian gardens. An average of 3 to 6 cloves per head. We are still increasing our number for this variety so a limited amount will be sold in 2017.
