Hardneck Garlic Seed

As the name implies, this catagory of garlic seed is generally hardier than softneck varieties.  Hardnecks are the best option for northern gardeners.  They are also the best choice if your want to enjoy garlic scapes in early summer.  Hardnecks are the only type of garlic that sends up a strong central stalk in spring.

Hardnecks varieties tend to form fewer cloves per bulb then softneck varieties, but they tend to be a bit larger.  Hardnecks will store between 4 and 6 months.

Hardneck garlic should be considered if:

  • you live in cold Northern states

  • you have cool springs

  • you live in growing zones 3-8

Garlic Scapes - Ships in June

Garlic scapes are the flower stems that grow from the tops of hardneck garlic.  It is encouraged to remove the scape from the plant to encourage the energy down to the bulb rather than towards the flower.  

Garlic scapes can be used before the bulbs are harvested.  Scapes have a more mild garlic flavor than raw garlic and can be minced or pureed for raw applications.  They can also be sauteed or grilled similar to the way you would prepare asparagus.  We love to dice and dry or freeze for use throughout the year, make garlic scape pesto, or pickle.
