Hardneck varieties produce a flower stalk called a scape. The scapes can be harvested and eaten in a number of ways; they are delicious! The flowers eventually form bulbils that can be planted as seed but they will usually produce small round bulbs the first year that need to be replanted. Hardneck varieties include: Rocambole, Standard Purple Stripe, Glazed Purple Stripe, Marbled Purple Stripe, Porcelain, Asiatic, Turban Artichokes, and Creole subvarieties. Here’s a photo of the garlic tops and the resulting bulbils.

German White: (porcelain hardneck variety) German White Garlic is one of the most widely grown garlic. It stores well, has large size easy to peel cloves. The flavor is a full body taste with a little zing when eaten raw, but produces a very flavorful gentle taste when cooked. Great for pestos, pastas, sauces, and even roasted.

Porcelain garlics may be the most beautiful garlics of all and sometimes seem too beautiful to eat. Their bulb wrappers tend to be very thick, luxuriant and parchment-like and tightly cover their few, but large, cloves. The outer bulb wrappers are often very white to milky and light tan although some some, like Romanian Red, tend to some purple striping as you peel away the wrappers. Their appearance tempts one to wonder whether they were sculpted by some great artist rather than something grown in the ground. There are no smaller cloves as most cloves are large and fat this makes them a great favorite with chefs.

German White Garlic also stores well because of our long and proper curing process.

Once harvested, usually mid August, our garlic is hung in our well ventilated barn, with fans. Bulbs and stalks remain together forcing the stalk juices to run down into the bulb for our signature Montana flavor.

Eating vs. Planting:
The only difference is we try to have very clean garlic for eating:
Planting may have small inperfections in the skins, Only difference is visual.

YOU HAVEN’T LIVED until you’ve tried Garlic Scape Pesto. This spreadable, dip-able, spoon-able stuff is light, tangy, and fresh. But let me warn you…it is alsohighly addictive.

Garlic scapes, if you have hitherto not made their acquaintance, are the curly, green shoots that emerge in summer from autumn-planted, “hard-neck” garlic bulbs. Growers usually remove these shoots in order to encourage further development of the bulb below. The scapes have a distinct garlic flavor that is potent, but without the stinging bite of a raw clove. Fresh Scapes are available June and July of each season, Freeze it or use it on arrival

Shipments are made Priority 3 day air, so the package arrives to you quickly. Thaw it, and use, or throw it in your freezer and break off a chunk to use anytime through out the year.
