Organic Red Rezan Garlic- A hardneck collected by Klaus Pistrick in 1986 from Rezan, Russia just southeast of Moscow, this 'Porcelain' variety is beloved for well-rounded garlic flavor and strong aromatic warmth both raw and cooked. We love Red Rezan for the rich depth and heat it brings our pesto. Its ultra-smooth wrappers are glazed purple and silver. Each clove is silver with a blush of purple at its base. Beloved for a well-rounded garlic flavor with very little heat raw or cooked. Each bulb has 8-12 easy-to-peel cloves that will store 7-8 months.

'Porcelain' varieties are hardnecks, throwing scapes in June just before bulb harvest. Bulbs are typically large and bright white, hence the name ‘Porcelain,” although purple or copper streaking sometimes appears in various growing conditions. They typically have 4-6 exceptionally large cloves in each bulb, their skins 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.

The garlic looks good so far.  Harvest is a ways off but I'm eager to see the final results.
