Spanish Roja is a well-known heirloom that was brought to North America in the 1800s. It is one of the most beautiful varieties and does well in Canadian cold winters. Bulb wrappers range from pink to deep purple, depending on local growing conditions. This garlic has a deep, rich, complex flavour that has a full-bodied character. Scapes should be removed to ensure good bulb formation. Grows well on a wide range of soils and can tolerate excess moisture better than other varieties.
Cloves: Averages 8-10 cloves per bulb. Stores up to 6 months.
