Organic Italy Hill Giant Ivory has been grown in the Finger Lakes for over 60 years & we are thrilled to share it with you! Our favorite for pesto (along with Red Rezan), these massive ivory bulbs with massive, easy to peel cloves have rich, full garlic flavor with a depth rarely present in Porcelain varieties. They store well into the winter, as well.
Average 4-6 large cloves per bulb.
“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.
Also, garlic is one of the hungriest crops in your garden! We feed our soil as well as our garlic with our Organic Garlic & Shallot Fertilizer as well as our Fish & Kelp Emulsion.
