6 reviews


For planting in Fall of 2020

Shipping starts the last week of September!!

SORRY, WE CANNOT SEND GARLIC OR ONION PLANTS TO ALASKA, HAWAII, PR, FOREIGN COUNTRIES AND SOME COUNTIES IN IDAHO AND WASHINGTON.

Hardneck-Rocambole type. An heirloom from the Canadian Pacific Northwest, brought over by immigrants from Doukhobor, Russia in the 19th century. It continues to be popular due to it ability to perform well in cold climates, while handling a wetter winter soil. Deep flavor, warm and long lasting with a sweet aftertaste. Produces consistent sized cloves, 5-8 per bulb and stores well 6-7 months. Planted in composted amended soil the 1 ½ -2-inch bulbs will produce hearty sized bulbs the next season. Don't forget to harvest and eat the scapes (Soup, Pesto, Hummus) the following spring or leave a few on to produces bulblets for planting next fall.  

1/4 POUND PER ORDER (APPROX. 3-4 BULBS)

Planting: 

Separate cloves, plant 2-4 inches deep and 5-6 inches apart with pointed end up, 3-4 weeks before the ground freezes.

Harvest: 

When lower 4-5 leaves have dried. Dry and hang out of direct light in a warm area with food air circulation. After they have dried for 2-3 weeks, cut off the stem, 1" from bulb and trim roots.

Tips: 

Plant in well drained, rich soil, amend with organic matter, such as compost. Mulch the garlic 4" with straw or chopped leaves, this helps protect from extreme winter conditions, keeps soil evenly moist and controls weeds for next season. Cut off scapes when they emerge (the curly seed stalk that will rise from the middle of the plant) so plant can put its energy into producing the bulb, not seed head. You can leave scapes on, producing smaller bulbs and the bulbets from the seed head can be planted for full sized garlic in 2 years.

Nice little garlic bulbs

Planted 21 cloves of Russian Red from Pinetree on October 8, 2019 and dug the last of our garlic on July 3, 2020. Nearly 100% germination before the depths of winter and overwintered under straw mulch as expected. Pulled 21 nice bulbs from the ground and managed to damage zero, so all good for storage, currently hanging from a tree drying. Very pleased with these nice little tight bulbs. They dwarf a bit next to the German Extra Hardy, but I love the zingy flavor. Back to order more!

Hardneck Garlic Russian Red dog with bad breathe

My neighbors d@mned dog dug up and ate my garlic. What half destroyed pods that I managed to get, showed that the garlic had sprouted, and a nice root system had started. . Fenced in raised beds didn't stop that dog. . I will try Russian Red garlic again next fall. Pinetree's garlic starts were excellent and reasonably priced. I have been buying Pinetree's products for years, thank you for being a company I trust.
