ROMANIAN RED (Hardneck, Porcelain)

$20.00Price

Romanian Red is known for high alicin levels, plump bulbs and a long-lasting, hot and spicy bite.  Originally from Romania, where winters are quite cold, with average highs even in lower-lying areas being no more than 3 °C (37.4 °F) and below −15 °C (5 °F) in the highest mountains.

 

This garlic has an excellent flavor and grows well in cold climates.  Bulbs contain 4 to 6 easy-to peel cloves.  Matures mid to late season. Stores 7 to 9 months.  

 

Romanian Red is a Porcelain Hardneck and is considered by many as being one of the more hardy and colorful Porcelains.  Similar to Rosewood and Music, Romanian Red is tolerant of many growing conditions.

 

Very hot and juicy, and containing the highest amount of allicin of any garlic variety known, it is a veritable medicine chest all wrapped up. Loves cold winters if you are going to plant but will thrive anywhere. – LocalHarvest.org

 

"It produces only four or so beautiful, plum cloves per head.  As a result, growing Romanian Red commercially can be a challenge, because we have to balance sales with keeping enough cloves for the next growing season." - Jere Folgert, GroEat Farm

  • GROWING INFORMATION

    Romanian Red is planted in the fall, soon after the first frost and a few weeks before the first hard frost. 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.
