Organic Wild Redneck Hardneck Garlic

1/2 pound (3-4 heads) - Washington


Redneck Wild is a hardneck, rocambole garlic with an average of 9-13 cloves per bulb. It is a unique and truly one-of-a-kind garlic variety. This special garlic is coveted by garlic enthusiasts. Redneck Wild was first found “wild” in Klamath County, and is generally believed to be a Rocambole. “Wild” bulbs boast a full flavor that is perfect for cooking.

General note: As time passes, the garlic will dry out more and more. So, although we bag your garlic into 1/2 pound bags, the weights will go down due to natural desiccation over time. Additionally, the cloves themselves will get drier over time - and although you will lose some gloves to mildew, the majority of the cloves should last quite a while - depending on the year and depending on the variety. But the longer you wait to consume the garlic, the bigger the risk to losing some cloves to mold. Note that mold around the stem does not always translate to mold in and around the cloves.

How you store the garlic also has an effect on if the garlic succumbs to mold over time - it's best to store your garlic in a cool, well-ventilated place, away from the sun and moisture. Unlike softneck garlic that you find in the average grocery store and that has been shipped in refrigerated transport, never put properly dried hardneck (or softneck) in the fridge. On the other hand, you can help delay spouting of grocery softneck by storing it in the fridge - where it has already been.


Availability: Hardneck garlic stores well, and we usually have garlic available through the holidays -- although by then, the selection is often pretty limited if not sold out completely. And although the majority of the cloves continue to become dryer and dryer, the garlic is still very eatable and the flavor very much intact - it just requires a little more elbow grease to get to it.
