Additional Information

Porcelain Garlic, hardneck type

Produces 3–6 very large cloves with tight porcelain-white skins, each equivalent to two or three cloves of supermarket garlics. Excellent storage. Huge cloves are wonderful in the kitchen (some will need cutting to fit into a garlic press!), and perfect for production pesto-making or baking whole.

Only 20–35 cloves per pound; Porcelains are slower to propagate than other hardnecks. Scapes form arches, curls and loose coils.

Seed Garlic

The bulb size, the skin color, the flavor, and the size and number of cloves are partly determined by genetics, and partly by cultural practices, soil and weather.

Our standard for a seed garlic bulb is a minimum 2" diameter. Every lot of garlic we ship has tested negative for garlic bloat nematode and for white rot.
