German Red Rocambole Garlic
The bulbs of German Red Rocambole Garlic are 2 1/2 inches (6 cm) wide, with thin, brownish purple skin. Owing to this thin skin, which flakes off easily, it doesn't have as long a storage life as some garlic bulbs can.
There will be 8 to 12, sometimes 10 to 15, cloves with buff-coloured skin. Occasionally there will be double cloves.
The garlic has a strong, full, hot and spicy flavour.
Above ground, the plant has dark green leaves.
The plant can survive cold winters well.
This garlic belongs to the Rocambole sub-group of hardneck garlics.
Stores for 4 to 5 months.
German Red Rocambole Garlic originated in Germany. It was brought to Idaho in North America by immigrants.
