Salt Spring Select (Allium ophioscorodon) - 

This is a relatively maintenance free heritage Rocambole that has origins to Prince Edward Island and later selected by Salt Spring Seeds. The bulbs have a smooth glazed purple striping with reddish-brown clove wrappers. It is quite impressive when it is dried down and cleaned up! We have found this variety to have very good heat tolerance. Salt Spring Rocambole’s are well know for their medium heat and long lasting flavours. Produces 8 - 10+ cloves and stores well up to 6 months. Also makes a  great roasting garlic!

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.
