Killarney Red (Rocambole) This has been an incredible performer for us, we’ve really gotten some tremendous size from these bulbs and the flavor is outstanding. It has thin pink bulb wrappers with lots of purple and brown. The bulbs are large and easy to peel making them a favorite in the kitchen. This is better adapted to wetter conditions than most others. Original origin is unknown. Averages about 8-10 cloves per bulb. This plant is a beauty.
These are prized by many famous chefs for their fine flavor and large easy to peel cloves. Beautiful scapes with single and double curls. Bulbs with single and some prone to double cloves. A shorter shelf life of approximately 5 months as a result of the loose skins so enjoy them into Fall. Needs a period of cold weather to grow large bulbs. (Vernalization). Cloves are tan to brown. This is a garlic plant I love to watch grow with the blue green large wide leaves that sway in the breeze. They are the winner of the fashion show. Most strains yield 6-10 cloves around the hard stem. One pound of seed garlic will yield approximately 50-60 plants.
