Description

We plant this extra early-cropping variety to give us garlic to harvest from late spring. It’s the first to go in in October/November and the first ready for the kitchen.

Care Tips

Keep the area weed-free until the foliage begins to turn yellow in early-summer when it is ready to lift, dry in the sun and then harvest.
