A classic rocambole garlic, Korean Red delivers a flavor that is spicy, rich and deep. The flavor holds on the tongue. This variety produces bulbs that usually have 7 to 9 good size cloves. Easy to peel and stores 5 to 6 months, Korean Red is ready to harvest early to midseason. Ideal uses include sauteing with green beans or kale, salsas (with garden chili peppers and summer tomatoes!), spicy stir fries and fall soups and stews. Also known as Korean Red Hot garlic.
