Italian Late garlic grows well in most of the country, unlike most softnecks that prefer warmer winters. The flavor is bold and pungent with an aftertaste that sneaks up on you. Heat and strength vary somewhat with growing conditions and may differ year to year based on moisture and temperature. The flavor, however, is always outstanding. Italian Late garlic grows quite large with generous amounts of water and good growing conditions. Bulbs typically have 7 to 9 cloves, with few small, central ones.
This hardneck garlic is available in two bulb sizes: Culinary (1.5-2.25" diameter) shipped in 2 bulb bags (approx. 1/4 lb) or and Seed (2.5" diameter) shipped in 3 bulb bags (generous 1/2 lb). Want to do a bit of cooking with a new variety before planting a whole row? Now you can!
