HARDNECK GARLIC VARITIES
Garlic is part of the lily family, which also includes onions, leeks and shallots.
Porcelain garlic produces large bulbs with easy-to-peel purple cloves with spicy, strong flavour.
Farm favorite with a stunning flavor and cloves! This garlic variety has the classic garlic porcelain sheen and flavor. This garlic can be eaten raw as they have a unique hot flavor.
Identified by a woody stem running through the center of the bulb. Each bulb is tightly wrapped in layers of porcelain white, thin, papery skin and contains an average of 4 to 7 extra large cloves per bulb.
Robust, complex flavors with a hint of heat; even raw, it is mild and roasted it becomes nutty, buttery, rich and sweet.
Rated as one of the best garlics for baking or roasting, it has a good lingering taste and retains flavor well when cooked. Its beautiful purple-striped paper, cloaking red cloves, is quite easy to peel.
This variety is widely grown for both its garlic scapes, which are false flower stalks that can be eaten as vegetables, and for their silvery white, papery bulbs.
Hot, but not too hot. A fabulous all around flavorful garlic.
Garlic scapes are the stalks that grow from the bulbs of hardneck garlic plants. If left unharvested, the scapes eventually bloom flowers when the garlic plant fully matures.
This year we have seven varities of hardneck garlic. The "neck" in the names refers to the stalk that grows upward from the garlic bulb. Hardnecks have a stalk that stems from the center of the bulb and turns rigid at maturity. Softnecks stalks are made up of leaves rather than a central stalk. Softneck leaves remain soft and flexible at maturity.
