Garlic, German White


Description Planting Instructions
Organic German White Garlic- One of the most widely grown hardnecks with rich garlic flavor & a lingering heat that softens & sweetens when cooked. We love German White in our pesto, sauces & roasts. Each large bulb offers 4-6 huge, easy to peel cloves that last for 6-8 months.

Average 40 cloves per pound.

“Porcelain” varieties are hardnecks throwing scapes in June just before bulb harvest. Bulbs are typically large and bright white (inspiring the name ‘Porcelain”) although purple or copper streaking often appears depending on growing conditions. Bulbs average 4-6 exceptionally large cloves, each skin ranging from yellowish-tan to brown to reddish-purple in both background and streaking. Cloves are easy to peel. As a group, Porcelains are among the highest yields of allicin, the sulfur compound most associated with garlic’s therapeutic benefits. As a result, they are often more pungent and unsubtle and lack the flavor complexity and depth found in Purple Stripes. Nonetheless, they work well for any dish that calls for assertive garlic flavor. Also, Porcelains (more than any other hardneck) set larger bulbs when their scapes are removed.
