Garlic has two sub-species: Softnecks and Hardnecks. We grow only Hardneck garlic in our farm. Hardnecks are the chefs favorites mainly for exceptional flavor and secondly for the large and easy to peel cloves.
Hardneck garlic is normally planted in October/November for the next year harvest. In Summer they produce curly scapes, followed by flowers that afterwards become garlic bulbils, which are miniature garlic cloves packed together in form of Umbel.
Umbels are airborne - no contact with soil - and therefore are free of soil-borne deceases, that offers a gardeners an opportunity to refresh the garlic stock from time to time, as well as quickly multiply the stock. Each Umbel contains 40-60 bulbils of medium size and 40-60 bulbils of smaller size. Each bulbil takes 2-3 years to grow into a good size bulb. However, if you have luxury of time, the experience is quite rewarding: in addition to getting garlic seed stock healthier, the multitude of growth from bulbils is exponential. For example, if on the 1st year you plant bulbils from a single umbel, then on 3rd year you will harvest same number of full size garlic bulbs as if you planted cloves from 7 full bulbs on the 1st year.
we are committed to growing clean 100% organic garlic for seeds and eating. We never use any chemicals during growing or storing of our garlic. Cured cow/horse/poultry manure, water, sun and loving care is all our garlic ever receives. We stop watering our garlic plantation a month before harvest to mature naturally. We cure our garlic in ventilated barn for a month after harvest. During curing time our bulbs form thick healthy skin that promotes longer storing time. We store our garlic naturally in a cool humidity-controlled area in small batches, and we check for any rotting periodically by just turning each batch around.
So when you get our garlic bulbs rest assured that they are a) healthy b) organically grown c) stored with NO chemicals.
