Killarney Red Rocambole Have 6-10 Large Robust Cloves with thin Purplish-brown skin which flakes off easily, they are very hardy and adapts to wet conditions better than most variates of Garlic. Killarney Red Garlic Seeds have a very classic rich sweet but hot, flavor that’s great eaten roasted, sauteed, or just raw. This Variety originated in Idaho and was possibly a mutation from German Red or Spanish Roja. Killarney Red garlic seeds grow great in colder areas rather than warmer areas.
This variety is a hardneck garlic which means it will grow a garlic scape which is the flower of the garlic plant. The scape should be snapped off once the stem starts to curl to send the energy to the bulb rather than the flower. Garlic scapes are very tasty and can be used in stir-fry or however you use garlic currently.
This tall, dark and green plant is easy to grow and is resistant to a wide variety of diseases that usually infect garlic. It is well suited for growing in almost all states, however, its growth may be marginal in southern states with dry, hot early summers.
