Garlic is one of the oldest known horticultural crops in the world. It originated from the rugged arid steppes of south central Asia-- northern Iran, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan-- and has been cultivated for over 5000 years for culinary and medicinal purposes. There are two subspecies of garlic: hardnecks and softnecks and several hundred cultivars are grown world wide.
We grow two types of hardnecks: Rocamboles and Purple Stripes, and two types of softnecks: Artichokes and Silver Skins. Seed garlic are 2" and above in diameter. This equates to 6-10 bulbs per pound, depending on the variety. All seed garlic is sold in 3 lb. increments and annual availability its posted to the website in April for pre-order and shipped in September.
