Detailed Product Info

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, tight wrapper. An excellent keeper, German Extra Hardy will store easily 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.

Garlic is sold in pound quantities. Please select the type of package you would like from the dropdown menu, and then enter how many you would like in the quantity box. (There are typically 25-40 cloves per pound; each clove successfully grown will produce a full bulb the following year.)

Feel free to order at any time, but be aware that garlic begins shipping in September. All orders containing garlic will be held for shipment until complete unless "split shipping" is selected at checkout.
