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.

Mid-season harvest.

The plant can survive cold winters well.

This garlic belongs to the Rocambole sub-group of hardneck garlics.

Storage Hints

Stores for 4 to 5 months.
