An heirloom, rocambole type with great full-bodied, strong and spicy garlic flavor. Grown for well over a century in German communities throughout the U.S. A relatively new variety for us at Swift River Farm, but after 5 years of cultivation, it is evident that it grows very well in our cold northern climate. German Red has good storage for a hardneck strain and reliably produces large, satiny white and purple heads. The easy-to-peel cloves are wrapped in fawn colored skins.
Like most rocamboles, averages about 6-8 seed-worthy cloves per bulb. However, use your discretion when planting.
