The breakdown of allicin in garlic releases the majority of the many chemical components of garlic, particularly by crushing or chewing raw garlic. Powerful sulfur compounds in garlic kill and inhibit an astounding assortment of bacteria, viruses, fungi, mold, parasites and worms, frequently on contact. They also work within the bodies vital systems, such as the circulatory, digestive, immunological, to promote detoxification, cleansing, lowering blood pressure, strengthening the immune system and healing.

Garlic Variety



 

rojaSPANISH ROJA
It has a mild yet full-bodied, rich garlicky flavor. The best known and loved hard neck in America today. The large, flat bottomed, purple streaked bulbs often reach three inches in diameter and typically have eight to twelve large tan cloves. It peels easily and stores up to 4-6 months. The outer bulb wrappers are thin and flake off easily so it is not the best storage type, but no Rocambole is. This heirloom garlic, came to the Portland, Oregon area over a hundred years ago. It is generally a vigorous grower with large foliage that is dark green. Flavor is very strong, hot and spicy and sticks around for a long time. It has been described as the most piquant garlic in the world. From a growers perspective, it grows well in cold winter areas, but does poorly in warm winter areas. $18 a pound, Sorry SOLD OUT

From Inchelium, WA, on the Colville Indian Reservation. The bulbs are large – to 3+ inches in diameter. 8-20 cloves of good size. Mild, but lasting, flavor, with a hint of hot! Dense cloves store well. Flavor can get stronger in storage. This vigorous soft-necked variety won a Rodale taste test of 20 garlic strains – named ” Very Best of the Soft-Necks.” Inchileum, is a soft neck so the cloves are smaller and have multiple layers of cloves. There are about 8 heads per pound and 8 to 10 large cloves per head with several smaller cloves in the center of the head that I don’t usually plant, I just eat the small ones. $18 a pound.
