Klamath Wild Garlic also known as Redneck Wild is a Rocambole first introduced in 2010 by my friend John who found this growing wild by a railroad track in Klamath County Oregon. I’ve always said the Rocamboles are the winner of the garlic fashion show and Klamath Wild is no exception. It’s plant is tall and robust with a blue- green color to its strong leaves. The bulb has the potential for a robust size easily growing to 3-4 inches and does well in cold climates. It’s full flavored and perfect for cooking and raw dishes. Due to it’s large size we are not able to offer this in 1/4 pound size.
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.
