A perfect complement to our main crop garlics because just as these varieties are sprouting and losing their fresh flavour, this garlic is ready to be harvested!
Out of stock.
2017 Crop Situation: Due to moving our entire operation and having out first baby we have grown a smaller crop of garlic this year. We have graded everything and do not have enough to sell seed stock this year. This is eating grade garlic and very nice, but the bulbs and cloves are smaller than what we would want to label as seed. We included a standard matchbook in the photo so you can get a sense of the size. Of course it can be planted and we will leave that up to you the customer to decide.
This is an early garlic. It is a perfect complement to our main crop garlics because just as these varieties are sprouting and losing their fresh flavour, this garlic is ready to be harvested! It has an identical growth characteristics to Early Pearl also growing in the open artichoke shape opening up pre-harvest.
Sow in March-April. Plant cloves15-20cm diagonal spacing pointy tip up in aerated, fertile, well drained soil that gets plenty of sunlight. Make sure soil is moist and then apply thick mulch directly after. Cut flower heads when emerging for larger bulb size, or keep for seed bulbils. Harvest Nov-Dec. when leaves start to die back. Store with roots and tops on to cure.
