Spanish Roja (rocombole hardneck variety) This garlic has taken off and has started producing some good sized bulbs for us. Spanish Roja is the best known and best loved hardneck garlic in America today. The large, flat bottomed, and brilliant dark purple streaked bulbs often reach three inches in diameter and typically have eight to twelve large cloves. It peels easily and stores up to 4-6 months. It is generally a vigorous grower with large foliage that is dark green and results in a pretty good sized bulb. Being a Rocambole garlic, its flavor is very strong, hot and spicy and sticks around for a long time. It has the deep, rich, complex flavor of gourmet garlic at its very finest. It has been described as the most piquant garlic in the world. It’s flavor is good and is best described as being a “true” garlic flavor. Averages about 8 cloves per bulb.

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
