Garlic, Early Italian Softneck

  • Sold out


Seed Garlic pre-orders are now available with shipping starting the first week of October. Regular seed packet orders should be placed separately from seed garlic if needed before then.

Allium sativum

"Sweet and mild. A great braiding garlic since it produces a combination of small, medium, and large bulbs at harvest. The largest bulbs will be produced from the large outer cloves. This is a great garlic to bake or roast. An early season softneck that has smooth white outer paper over purple tinted cloves.
Adapts well to summer heat and is known for long storage when properly cured.
Stores 9-12 months."

Storage instructions: Make sure to keep your garlic in a brown bag in a cool, dark, dry place until you are ready to plant it. 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal storage temperature. Air must be able to circulate freely around the bag. Do not store garlic in the refrigerator.

Sowing instructions: Garlic is best sown in the fall after the first light frost of the season. Bulbs should not be separated into cloves until just before planting. Sow with the point where the cloves attached to the bulb pointed down. We recommend mulching your garlic bed with a light layer of leaves to help with weed suppression and overwintering.
