Porcelain Garlic Variety

Porcelain Garlic - Susan Delafield
Porcelain garlic - Susan Delafield

The garlics described on this page belong to the Porcelain garlic variety. Porcelains are big, beautiful looking garlics with satiny white wrappers. They keep well, have a strong flavour, and do well under a wide variety of growing conditions. They usually have 4 to 6 large cloves with reddish brown clove skins. The smaller number of cloves means that when used as seed garlic they yield fewer plants. If the scapes are left on the plants to mature, they each produce hundreds of tiny bulbils which can be planted to produce full-sized bulbs in about three years. We highly recommend Porcelains for growing anywhere in Canada

Note on Flavours
Please take our comments on flavour with a generous pinch of salt. The apparent strength and flavour of a strain of garlic is an individual perception. Different people under the same circumstances can have diametrically opposed views on the palatability and heat of a strain of garlic.
