Garlic begins shipping in September.
Also known as German White, German Extra Hardy is in the Porcelain group of hardneck garlics. Each head produces 4-6 fat cloves encased in a pink, tighl wrapper. An excellent keeper, German Extra Hardy will store easliy for 6 months if handled properly after harvest.
Bulbs can easily grow to 2" or more in diameter, and with only 4 to 6 cloves per bulb, this is one of the easiest varieties to peel. The taste is pungent, but not overpowering. The scapes from German Extra Hardy are generous and flavorful, adding to the bounty of the harvest.
German Extra Hardy can withstand very cold winters, and even stand up to wet, warm winters better than many other varieties. Long roots prevent frost heaving. Individual cloves are enveloped in a thick red skin, which when left intact at planting provide added protection in moist conditions.
Grown at Skymeadow Farm, a Certified Organic farm in Cherry Valley, New York.
