Mennonite (Geisbrecht) Garlic


Regular price $2.95 Sale

Mennonite (Geisbrecht) (Allium ophioscorodon) If you like hot garlic, this porcelain will certainly satisfy your need for heat! One of my Grade 7 German-Mennonite students from Winkler, Manitoba gifted me a bag of extra large Porcelain Garlic back in 2009. She referred to them as a German ‘Hot-neck’ variety from her Grandmother Geisbrecht’s farm. I planted about 60 large cloves that fall and have never been disappointed with these hot hardneck porcelains! They have fared extremely well in the Maritime climates of Canada! A mighty hot flavourful porcelain yielding 4-6 cloves.

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.
