KILLARNEY GARLIC: Rocambole hardneck garlic. Strong, nutty flavor. Cooking enhances its sweetness. White-wrapped bulbs that hold 8-6 large cloves clothed in pink skin that is easy to peel. Well adapted to wet conditons. Stores 5 to 6 months.
You will need patience to grow garlic using bulbils. Garlic grown from cloves matures into a full head of garlic in one season. Bulbils will take 2 to 3 seasons to fully mature. They will first create a small single bulb the first year and sometimes the 2nd year as well before growing a full head of garlic.
The benefit of garlic bulbils is that they are an inexpensive way to grow lots of varieties of garlic. They also seem to adapt to individual climates better.
Plant your bulbils in either the fall or the spring, in the ground or in containers. I prefer containers the first year to keep track of where they are.
Our garlic is grown naturally, without chemicals or pesticides.
Includes 20 bulbils.
