Red Janice Garlic Seeds
Red Janice Garlic Seeds have a deep and pungent taste when raw, and when the garlic seeds are roasted or baked it becomes sweet. Red Janice’s skin is very flaky and easy to peel. The color of Red Janice’s garlic seeds is heavily striped, with dark red to purple, making them quite attractive. The Turban varieties mature weeks before the other varieties, but Red Janice Turban matures slightly later and stores better than the other turbans, they are also highly adaptable and adjust to mild southern climates. Red Janice Garlic originated from the Republic of Georgia.
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 hot early summers.
