One of the hottest spiciest garlics we grow! Romanian Red, like most porcelains is a large and beautiful garlic with rich robust flavor that is strong and has an aftertaste that lingers.
Romanian Red has been tested and generates more allicin , by far, than any of the other ones tested. If you want a hot garlic , this one is it- and it stores into the following spring!.
From a grower's perspective, it is a large and healthy garlic to grow and appears to be relatively resistant to most of the diseases that can affect garlic. It was grown in Romania for centuries.
Grows well in most states even some years in Warm Winter Areas, but will be marginal there in years with early hot summers.
Harvests in early-mid summer - a rich flavored, very hot strong garlic that stores into spring at cool room temp.
4 to 6 cloves per bulb. 25 to 30 cloves per pound. Late harvest. Stores 6 months. Zones 1 to 7. Produces scapes. Hot.
Garlic used for seed is generally 2" or greater, while eating garlic can be any size.
