German Extra Hardy can withstand very cold winters, and even stand up to wet, warm winters better than many other varieties. Long roots prevent frost heaving. Individual cloves are enveloped in a thick red skin, which when left intact at planting provide added protection in moist conditions. Bulbs can easily grow to 2" or more in diameter, and with only 4 to 6 cloves per bulb, this is one of the easiest varieties to peel. The taste is pungent, but not overpowering. The scapes from German Extra Hardy are generous and flavorful, adding to the bounty of the harvest.
Grown at Good Flavor Farm, a Certified Naturally Grown farm in Tivoli, New York.
Garlic is sold by the pound. Please enter the number of pounds you would like in the quantity box. (There are typically 25-40 cloves per pound; each clove successfully grown will produce a full bulb the following year.)
Feel free to order at any time, but be aware that garlic ships beginning in mid-September.
Price of $22.00 includes a $2.00/lb. shipping premium. We have to charge this because our usual shipping rates are set up to accommodate the lower cost of shipping seeds, which are much lighter in weight.
