Product Description:

Mid-season, Rocambole type. Folks who regularly include garlic as a part of their diet typically like stronger-flavored garlic like Bavarian Purple. After eating half of a clove, we found that the heat built quickly, made the eyes water, then disappeared just as fast with no aftertaste. Develops a tremendous system of roots that gives it excellent stability in hard-winter regions. Stores 9 months to a year.

Garlic is shipped only in the fall—September through mid-October, depending on the season and the variety. Quantities are limited; order early for best availability. Sorry, not available to Idaho, US Territories, or Canada.

Mine did excellent!

I have a back to eden or "woodchip" garden and these grew beautifully in clay, compost, woodchip layer. Some heads grew small and alot huge. I planted in October 2022, harvested end of July 2023. I am in zone 8b in Sultan WA. I saved enough to replant because its expensive, especially when they only have 1lb left in stock. I grew these next to elephant garlic (territorial seed) and those did amazing!

Good yield, great flavor

Bellevue, WA
I grew 35 heads from one 8oz order, all good sized.
Robust and sharp flavor .

Better than last year, but..

I tried again this year. So far, the number of decent bulbs better than last year. Still even the decent ones were dry (brown). Not sure why of all the HN breed that I have tried so far this seems to be most problematic. I don't think I will try again next year.

Bulbs were rotting or dried

I have bought a lot of garlic from TS before. This was just my second batch for this year (1st batch was Siberian Garlic). I have never been so disappointed. Of the 2 lbs that I opened, at least half of each lb were bad, and I mean the bulbs were either dried (dark brown and hard), or totally rotting - fungus were developing on the bulbs. This is the first time that I have gotten sub-standard garlic bulbs from TS. Very disappointed. I planted what are still half decent today. Rest I have to toss. What a waste!

Folklore is rife with tales of garlic's ability to bestow strength and courage, treat a vast array of disease and infections, and to ward off evil. Modern day medicine has shown this remarkable food to be powerfully effective at boosting the immune system, supporting cardiovascular health, and fighting cancer.

Hardneck Garlic: Allium sativum subsp. ophioscorodon Cloves grow in a single circle around a central woody stem. These varieties also produce, or attempt to produce, a flower-like stalk. What makes these garlics stand out is the range and quality of flavors they exhibit. Hardneck garlics typically have a shorter storage life than softnecks.

Softneck Garlic: Allium sativum subsp. sativum These varieties produce cloves in several layers around a soft central stem. Approximate cloves per pound can vary based on seasonal conditions and the variety. These easy-to-grow garlics are excellent in the kitchen and usually have the best storage qualities. Great for braiding.

Elephant Garlic: Allium ampeloprasum Not a true garlic, these enormous bulbs have much milder and sweeter flavor than garlic, as it's related more closely to a leek. Elephant garlic is planted 6-8 inches apart and covered with 4-6 inches of soil.

• Garlic thrives in rich, well-drained soil with a pH between 6.0-7.0
• Work in 1 inch layer of compost, 1/2 cup of bone meal, 1/2 cup TSC's Complete fertilizer per 5 row feet
• When spring growth begins: water to keep the soil slightly moist and fertilize with Age Old Grow or TSC's Complete fertilizer
• As harvest approaches: water less to avoid molding or staining
• Hardnecks: cut off any flowering stems (scapes) at the top leaf to redirect energy to the bulb; scapes can be used like green onions

Direct Sowing
• In Northern regions, garlic is best planted by the end of October, or 6-8 weeks before the ground freezes
• Southern regions may plant as late as March
• Separate the cloves of garlic just prior to planting, keeping as much skin on as possible
• Plant cloves pointed end up
• Mulch with clean straw or leaves to 4 inches

Pests & Diseases
• Common pests: onion thrips, stem & bulb nematodes
• Pest control: Pyrethrin, 5–7 year crop rotation
• Common diseases: Gray mold/Botrytis, rust
• Disease prevention: 5–7 year crop rotation, avoid soggy soil

Harvest & Storage
• Harvest when the top 4-5 leaves are slightly green and lower leaves are dry
• Begin checking for mature bulbs in late June
• Each green leaf represents one layer of covering over the bulb in the ground
• Tie the plants in small bundles and dry in a cool, shaded, well-ventilated location for about 3-4 weeks
• After curing is done, cut foliage and roots from bulbs and store in mesh bags
• Softnecks: you can keep leaves on and braid the whole plant
