Creole Seed Garlic

The Creole strains have many excellent qualities; size is not one of them for most northern growers.  We sell a minimum 1.5 inch bulbs for our creole strains.  When planted in warmer climates, they generally grow larger than this.  Some years they do grow larger for us here near the Canadian border.  Genetically they are softneck Silverskins that bolt weakly and behave like hardneck garlic. They do send up a flower stalk and have a hard stem. Creoles have excellent flavor, great for raw use in salads and marinades.  They also have magnificent bright pink red clove wrappers and store exceptionally well.  

Approx 80 cloves per pound and stores approx 10-12 months

 

We are also offering Creole seed that is grown using 100% organic methods, but is not certified organic. You will see these strains clearly noted as "Certified Naturally Grown." The naturally grown certification is a grass-roots model used by farms throughout the country.
