Phillips Rocambole has 6 to 8 cloves per bulb and are easy to peel making it popular among chefs.  The cloves have a dark-brown, dark-maroon red skin and are known to store longer than most types.  Heads have a beautiful purple striping on the wrappers, and large bulb size for a rocambole.  It has a spicy zing with some underlying sweetness, a hardy disposition and is not too hot. Plants are short and stocky with broader leaves as compared to the porcelain type. 


This is a popular hardneck in New England though it grows well in northern climates across the United States.  Acquired by Maine seed savers from a man in New York whose Italian ancestors came to work on the Erie Canal in the 1820’s.  The variety gets its name from Phillips, Maine where Raymond Rowe propagated it for many years.

    Phillips is a garlic planted in the fall, soon after the first frost and a few weeks before the first hard frost.   Plant individual cloves in well-composted amended soil.   Harvest and eat the scapes (eat the scapes and make Soup, Pesto, Hummus) the following spring so the plant can put more energy into the  head.  Or, experment and leave a few onto produces bulblets for planting next fall.

    The seed garlic bulbs should be taken apart into separate cloves not long before planting. Hardneck garlic requires vernalization (exposure to a period of cold temperatures) before or after planting. Plant cloves two inches deep, the pointed side up. Garlic does best with a loose soil with very good drainage and a pH of 7.0 optimum. Plant in an area with full sun exposure.
