Chesnok Red-Purple Striped variety
Originating from Shvelisi, Republic of Georgia. Chesnok is capable of producing large bulbs containing 7 to 9 crescent shaped cloves. A taste test winner and a must have for anyone's Garlic collection. Stores very well
German Porcelain-Porcelain Variety
A cold hardy Garlic with 4 to 7 cloves. This is a very productive Garlic with fat cloves and is the first Garlic that I grew. A very dependable variety I have grown for many years with success. Stores well.
Georgian Crystal -Porcelain variety
A beautiful Garlic, originally harvested in an area located between the Black and Caspian Seas known as The Republic of Georgia. This Garlic produces consistently good yields and is fairly disease resistant. The bulbs are large up to 2 inches or greater with 4 to 7 fat cloves. Having a mild, sweet flavor when used raw, it is perfect for pesto and salsa. When cooked it maintains its mellow rich flavor. Stores well.
Inchelium Red -Artichoke
Discovered in Inchelium, Washington near the Canadian border, this is a top rated Softneck Garlic. Inchelium Red can grow quite large generally with several nice sized clove layers and then smaller central cloves. It is a good braiding Garlic that is rich in flavor, but not overpowering. If you grow Garlic you want at least one Softneck. Excellent storing
You can experience a unique variety of gourmet Garlic by ordering a sampler, consisting of an assortment of our garlic. An Order of 1 pound will be a mix of three different Garlic. A 2 pound order will have a mix of six.
Scapes are the seed stalks that are produced by Hardneck Garlic. Scapes are a culinary treat that can only be harvested during a short period in June. They have a unique appearance and have a mild Garlicky flavor. Scapes can be sautéed, grilled, steamed or added to soups and salads. Scapes store about 3 weeks in the refrigerator and can be frozen for later use. A medium flat rate box holds 4 to 5 pounds and sells for $30.00 shipping is included.
Our garlic has been tested for Garlic Bloat Nematode.
Majestic -Porcelain Variety
An original cultivar from Beaver Pond Estates in Ontario. A slightly milder tasting porcelain that has proven itself to be a good producer in Northern climates. A rare variety in this area. Stores well.
German Extra Hardy-Porcelain Variety
Consistently the largest Porcelain Garlic that I grow. I have read that this along with German White, German Stiffneck and Northern White are the actually same Variety. All I know is that it grows slightly different than my German Porcelain in that it will send up Scapes and harvest about a week later. Stores well.
Polish Red Softneck -Artichoke
Long a favorite of mine, this Softneck harvests early. Watch for one brown leaf then dig one up to check progress. Expect to harvest up to two weeks before your Hardneck's. Generally, produces large bulbs with fewer of the small inner clove than you expect from a Softneck. Excellent storing
A collection of our Garlic that does not quite meet the Planting Stock size standard but excels in the taste department. As an added benefit the smaller bulbs tend to store longer.
Romanian Red -Porcelain variety
Introduced to British Columbia from Romania, it is reported to be a fairly disease resistant garlic. This Garlic is a robust grower, producing 4 to 5 large, easy to peel cloves. It is pungent and hot “with a bite” when eaten raw. When cooked it has a wonderful “Garlic” complexity. This is a “Garlic lover’s” Garlic. Stores well.
