We are offering Garlic Bulbils.   

 

bulbils typically range in size from a grain of rice to a corn popcorn. For those of you who want to increase garlic stock cheaply, this is the way to do it. It takes 2-3 years to get them up to the big bulbs everyone likes.  In the first year, you will likely grow a golf-ball-sized bulb with no cloves.  In the second year, the bulb will have individual cloves.  In other words, it takes two years to grow a garlic bulb with multiple cloves. 

 

Garlic bulbils are tiny, bulbs that are produced on the scape of hardneck garlic. The scape is a long, leafless stem that grows from the center of the garlic plant and produces a cluster of bulbils at the top. Bulbils are essentially clones of the mother plant, and can be planted to grow new garlic bulbs.

Garlic bulbils are typically smaller than garlic cloves, and they can range in size from that of a grain of rice to the size of a chickpea. They are usually brown in color and have a pointed end. Bulbils can be planted in the fall, just like garlic cloves. However, it will take bulbils two to three years to produce a full-sized garlic bulb.

 

In the first year, bulbils will typically grow into small, round bulbs called rounds. Rounds can be eaten, but they are not as flavorful as garlic cloves. In the second year, rounds will produce garlic bulbs with a few cloves. In the third year, the bulbs will be fully mature and can be harvested for their cloves.

 

Garlic bulbils have a number of advantages over garlic cloves. First, they are more disease-resistant. Second, they are easier to store than garlic cloves. Third, they can be planted in a wider range of climates. Finally, they are a good option for growers who want to produce garlic seeds for sale.

 

Here are some tips for planting and growing garlic bulbils:

 

Plant bulbils in the fall, at least 6 inches apart.
Plant bulbils 1-2 inches deep, depending on their size.
Water bulbils regularly, especially during the first year.
Fertilize bulbils with a balanced fertilizer in the spring.
Harvest bulbils in the summer, when the leaves start to turn yellow.
Cure bulbils in a dry, well-ventilated place for 2-3 weeks before storing.


Garlic bulbils can be used in a variety of ways. They can be eaten fresh, cooked, or pickled. They can also be used to make garlic powder, garlic salt, and other garlic products.
