German Red Hardneck Garlic
Certified Organic Seed
Known for having the spiciest garlic flavor.
German Red is a hardneck variety in the Rocamble group. Rocambles are prized for having the best, spiciest garlic flavor, and German Red is no exception! It is also one of the easiest Rocambles to grow, and is well adapted to the Northern climate. Heads can reach impressive proportions, some of the largest in our 2016 garlic trials.
White heads reveal 8-12 cloves tightly wrapped in pinkish tan colored skins. A moderate keeper, German Red will store for 4-6 months if handled properly after harvest.
Grown at Skymeadow Farm, a Certified Organic farm in Cherry Valley, New York.
Garlic is sold in pound quantities. There are typically 45-65 cloves per pound; each clove successfully grown will produce a full bulb the following year. One pound of hardneck garlic can plant between 20-30 feet and will yield about 5 times that amount.
