Russian Red (Rocambole)

  • Rocambole

    Russian Red Rocambole garlic has a rich, musky, garlicky flavor and is very hot when eaten raw. When cooked it mellows but still spreads its enticing aroma through the air. Rocamboles are early harvesting full flavored garlic that you can be enjoyed while waiting for the longer storing ones to mature and harvest. Usually harvests in late June to early July and stores into mid-winter at room temp. This variety will produce 5-8 cloves in a bulb. Grows best in the northernmost regions but forget about growing them in the south. These garlic grow very large in the cold Alberta climate. This garlic comes to us from Boundary Garlic in BC.
