Garlic ‘Western Rose’ Silverskin Softneck

Description

Late-season, Silverskin type. A larger relative of Silver Rose, this is one of the longest-storing garlics and a great choice for braiding. Outer bulb covering is white; clove wrappers have pink and rose stripes. Smaller inner cloves are surrounded by large cloves. Sharp garlic flavor. Photo courtesy of Territorial Seed.
Care: Plant 6-8″ apart, 1-2″ deep. Harvest when all but 3-4 leaves turn dry and brown (usually July). Hang to dry in cool, shady, ventilated area for 2 weeks, then store in a cool dark location.
