Allium sativum
"Our spiciest Rocambole, German Red has long been a favorite of Northern home gardeners. Good all around flavor for both cooking and eating raw.  This heirloom, hardneck garlic has loose clove wrappers making it the easiest to peel garlic.  Doubles cloves (2 cloves in one wrapper) are common."

Description and seed garlic sourced from Winniford Family Farm in Rice, WA.
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.
