Spanish Roja is a popular Rocambol Hardneck. It’s flavor is superb, full-bodied, rich and sweet.  The garlic heat index is: moderate-to-hot heat.  The cloves typically large and are easy to peel making it a favorite for chefs and cooks.  Bulbs are 2" - 3+" and larger and average 8-10 cloves.   The wrappers that cover the bulb can be cream-colored on the outside and deep purple-magenta colored closer to the cloves.  The local restaurants in our area demand this variety because of its easy-to-peel cloves and outstanding rich garlic flavor.


Spanish Roja apparently originated in Spain.  Spanish Roja would eventually travel to the New World and find its way to the Northwestern region of the United States just before 1900.   It is also called Greek garlic by home gardeners.  


During the growing season, the Spanish Roja plants are shorter and have broader leaves as compared to other garlic plants such as Porcelains.   Plants in our region typically grows to 12-18" tall.   This garlic produces a dark green plant with healthy leaves, and is a very good survivor.  Spanish Roja garlic often produces garlic scapes later than Porcelains.

    Spanish Roja is a garlic 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.
