German White Extra Hardy Garlic is called, “the chef’s garlic” by garlic connoisseurs. This “porcelain” variety produces extremely hardy garlic seed. The bulbs sport an outer white skin, with garlic seed cloves that have a reddish tint on the inside wrappers. The cloves peel easily, and store well into February and longer. We trialed many different varieties of garlic and German White is the hardiest garlic seed variety we have tried. It easily survives the -30F and even -40F Northern Vermont winters on our organic garlic farm. Year after year German White produced the largest bulbs and most consistent crop, so now it is the only variety we grow.
