Product Description

Northern Italian Red - Silverskin Garlic - softneck from BERNIER FARMS in Healdsburg, CA - Grown without the use of chemical fertilizers or chemical pesticides by a local grower. This garlic has a sweet/spicy balance. The clove size is generally large and as a softneck variety, is ideal for braiding. In 1974 Yael Bernier's neighbor gave her 10 heads of this garlic to grow. The seed was from Northern Italy. This garlic is from those original heads of garlic.

Where winters are milder (like our area) garlic is planted from October through January.

Garlic will make the largest bulbs in fertile soil with lots of organic matter, so amend your soil as nessesary.

Break the bulbs into individual cloves and plant 4-6" apart in rows that are 12" apart. Aprox 1" deep, root side down.

Fertilize in spring with a little chicken manure and a slow release organic fertilizer like cottonseed meal or Cal Organic 7-5-7.

Harvest is based on the type of garlic. Once the tops start to die down usually June-July.
