Creme de la Rasa

Garlic


Creme de la Rasa garlic is a hardneck variety that produces large, plump purple cloves! It is mild in heat, but rich in flavor. It is known to be hardy in the field, making it ideal for farmers! It is one of the several purple striped varieties we are offering this season!

Clear
PRE-ORDER: Garlic will be shipped fall 2020 when appropriate. We can not ship sooner.

Timing
Sow cloves September – November for harvest the following July. *Check your zone’s suggestions for best results!*

Starting
Do not remove the skin of the clove! Separate each clove and place each one, pointed end up, about 6 in apart and with the tip of the clove 1-2 inches deep in rich, well drained soil. Plant deeper if you are expecting a lot of rain, as the soil may erode!

Growing
Fertilized, well-drained soil is always best! Do not compact the soil. Fertilize when spring growth starts. Water as needed and keep weeded.

Harvest
Garlic usually matures between the early to mid-summer.  Harvest when ½-¾ of the leaves have started to die back (yellow, and falling over).  Cure the bulbs by leaving them in a warm spot for 1 week to 10 days. Cut off the stems and leaves of the hardneck varieties, but leave the leaves on the softneck to use for braiding or hanging. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated space, not the fridge!
