From Purple Frog Gardens, Whitefish, MT
. Developed in the Flathead Valley, this hard neck rocambole variety is one of Purple Frog's favorites, which they have been growing for over 20 years. Big bulbs with 8-10 mostly large cloves/bulb. The beautiful rusty purple skin is easy to peel and the flavor hints of grass, with a smooth garlic bite. Keeps well through mid to late winter.
Price is Per Pound. Our garlic ships in September.
Keep cloves in cool, dry location until ready to plant.
Plant in fall before ground freezes (by mid-Oct in zone 4).
Sow cloves in rows that are 8 inches apart, spacing garlic cloves 6 inches apart in the row. Plant 2-3 inches deep, and mulch well (at least 2-4 inches).
Trim the garlic scape curls that form in late spring/early summer for a tasty garlic-flavored green and promote larger bulb formation.
Our crop this year comes courtesy of Purple Frog Gardens, of Whitefish, MT, who have been growing and selecting seed from this variety for over 20 years. Purple Frog Gardens is a family market farm that has been growing good food for locals since 1991. They credit their high quality produce on their dedicated soil building efforts for over 20 years, done with the help of countless volunteers, community members and young people.
