Mountain Giant Garlic


Regular price $2.95 Sale

Mountain Giant (Allium ophioscorodon) - This is the very first Rocambole garlic we ever grew for market here on the North Mountain. It came with the farm and will most likely stay with the farm for many generations! In fact, I don’t think anyone will ever get rid of it, even if they try. From our best ID and from other expert growers, it appears to look and behave a lot like Doukhabor or Spanish Roja. Produces very large bulbs by mid season that yield 8 -12 cloves and store 4-6 months. Produces 10-25 large Bulbils that can be planted in fall as rounds. Like most Rocambole hardneck garlic, long term storage is challenging due to the thin and limited wrappers. Slightly earlier harvest can help combat the storage viability issue. We have pushed storage to 10 months with no issues. Mountain Giant is mellow and sweet tasting at first followed by a lasting true ‘zing’ of garlicky flavour. A great garlic for roasting.

All garlic orders will be shipped starting August 31 to ensure curing process is complete. 


Our garlic is grown under organic production principles from planting until harvest. All plants, cloves and bulbs are carefully inspected to ensure the highest of quality seed stock. 

Shipping your garlic: The garlic you ordered has been cured and inspected, packaged in paper to allow breathing room. When your garlic arrives we suggest you take it out of the paper bags and give it some room allowing more curing time before you store it for pre-planting in the fall. 

Storing your garlic before planting: Keep your bulbs out of direct sunlight, 10-15 degrees and below 60% Relative humidity with good air circulation. Avoid storing in a place with high temperature or humidity fluctuations. Storage mold may form on garlic that sits on a warm kitchen counter day after day, or a non insulated garage with high overnight humidity.
