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.
Our German White Extra Hardy Garlic is certified organic by Vermont Organic Farmers (VOF) and tested free of garlic bloat nematode by Cornell University Extension. We have grown organic garlic on Eastview Farm since the early 1990’s and we’re proud to offer you the very best garlic seed. Read more about our farm and growing practices…
Our hardy garlic seed bulbs are large, averaging 2.25 inches in diameter and 6-7 bulbs per pound. Each bulb contains 4-5 large cloves that go a long way when cooking and easily survive the harshest winters. 1lb of seed will give you approximately 24-35 seeds for planting. If you order 4lbs you will yield around 100 garlic bulbs next year, enough to have 2 bulbs per week for cooking!
What makes our seed garlic special?
- 20 years of selection on our organic garlic seed farm for cold hardiness, superior flavor and storage qualities. We believe that this is the best garlic you can buy if you have long, cold winters like we do.
- Nutrient dense with average BRIX readings of 42.5 on newly harvested garlic bulbs in 2017. This means that the garlic you order from us will be nutrient dense. Our garlic tests exceeds the excellent range. (See the charts on the About our Garlic page for more information.) Learn more about how we plant our garlic.
- Certified organic and tested free of garlic bloat nematode. This invasive pest can ruin your crop.
All garlic orders will be shipped in our all natural, biodegradable wood curl packaging called Sylvacurl. The shavings can be added to your compost pail, soil at planting time or mulch layer.
Scenes from the 2018 harvest
You have to start with quality to get quality.
I have only planted garlic twice before. Each time the scapes were thin and tasty. YOUR garlic seed created MASSIVE scapes – never seen anything like it. And, each of the 80-90 plants have very thick stalks. I can hardly wait til harvest time.
Started planting your garlic… beautiful! Thank you!
My garlic is beyond beautiful, I’d like to buy more seed for the fall.
