HARDNECK GARLIC BULBILS
Do you love Garlic? Then you will want to plant HARDNECK GARLIC!
A little history: Though our commercial garlic is grown under the soil-did you know all garlic originated from the Hardneck varieties? Hailed as "the best tasting" garlic-this fascinating variety from the Soviet Union is still fairly new to US gardeners and only made available 1989, when American's were allowed to enter the exclusive Caucasus region to collect some of the unique "topset" bulblets. The term topset meaning the garlic bulbs both appear and are harvested from the top of the plant and not underground.
Rocamboles have been nicknamed "Serpent Garlic" due to its rich fiery flavor and swirling edible scapes twisting around the plant like a dragon's tail.
