Rocambole Seed Garlic

HARDNECK

Rocambole garlics are renowned for their complex and full flavor, often referred to as "true garlic flavor."  These strains are the most well-known and hence, widely grown of the hardneck varieties. Beautiful, low growing plants with a deep green/blue tint. Scapes are delicious, growing into several tight curls.  The clove skins are very loose on Rocambole cultivars, often not even completely enclosing the clove. This can lead to some discoloration on the cloves which is normal.  While the loose clove wrappers make for easy peeling in the kitchen, they also lead to the greatest disadvantage of Rocambole strains- shorter storage life than other varieties. Bulbs will typically contain 6-11 cloves. While best suited for northern climates, Rocamboles are grown successfully by those in all but the warmest of climates.

Approx 60 cloves per pound and stores approx 4-6 months
