Beautiful picture of some Porcelain garlics.

Porcelain garlics (Hardnecks)

Porcelain garlics may be the most beautiful garlics of all and sometimes seem too beautiful to eat. Their bulb wrappers tend to be very thick, luxuriant and parchment-like and tightly cover their few, but large, cloves. The outer bulb wrappers are often very white to milky and light tan although some some, like Romanian Red, tend to some purple striping as you peel away the wrappers. Their appearance tempts one to wonder whether they were sculpted by some great artist rather than something grown in the ground. There are no smaller cloves as most cloves are large and fat (four to eight per bulb), this makes them a great favorite with chefs.

Great eating garlic -Porcelains are all very richly flavored garlic with an earthy muskiness and generally hot strong tasting garlics with a few exceptions like Georgia Crystal and Music.

Great storing garlic -
Porcelain garlics store longer than most other garlics, only the Silverskins store longer, if all are grown well. Large fat strong cloves that are very long storing, it's hard to ask much more out of a garlic.

Great Health Benefits -
The Porcelains are the densest of all garlics and weigh more per unit of volume than the other kinds and research scientists say that makes it a superior medicinal garlic, especially the hotter ones. There are lots of reasons to want to grow your own Porcelain garlics, especially if you like hot, strong garlics like Romanian Red (some think it is the strongest) or Wild Buff or Rosewood.

Great growing garlic -
In our experience, Porcelains are very hardy garlic and will grow well in most of the USA, but get larger the further North they are grown. Even so, they do well in most areas of the South most years although they are "iffy" in Florida and South Texas and the warmer winter parts of California. Clove covers tend to be somewhat longish and a golden brown color with distinctive vertical, purplish streaks.

Porcelain garlics are unique in that the scapes they produce in the spring coil in all kinds of ways and resemble a bed of snakes before the scapes all straighten up and become vertical. Other hardneck garlics form a characteristic fairly uniform pattern before straightening up, Rocamboles form a distinct double loop while Purple Stripes form 3/4 of a loop.

Porcelains have few but large cloves and this has limitations in that a large clove may be more than you want to use and sometimes a smaller clove might be preferred (Another reason to grow several kinds of garlic.) and also, you have to save back a larger percentage of your total crop for planting stock next year than you do with other varieties if you plant from cloves as most people do, though some plant bulbils that takes two full growing seasons to mature. For those who want to grow their own garlic it takes a year or two longer to grow all you can eat. Porcelains harvest late in the season but well before the Silverskins. Bulbs are usually over 2 1/2 inches in diameterand 3" bulbs are not unusual and are grown for primarily for their rich flavor and good storage capability.

Porcelain garlics are often more expensive than most other garlics partly because or their rarity and partly because the growers have to set aside a larger part of their crop for next seasons planting stock and for this reason many commercial growers prefer to grow varieties with more cloves per bulb so they can sell a higher percentage of their crop every year. Higher wholesale price means higher retail price.

Recent DNA analyses of garlic by Dr. Gayle Volk of the USDA in Colorado and also Dr. Joachim Keller of the Plant Institute in Gaterslaben, Germany showed that cultivars of Porcelain garlics were more genetically similar to each other, though distinctly different, than any of the other groups of garlic.

Leningrad -
A very rich, hot, strong Porcelain garlic with a taste you can't forget.

Picture of Porcelain garlics.

Know where your food comes from - Buy Direct from our growers below and Save.

Leningrad grows well in most states even in warm winter areas but will be marginal at best along the gulf coast and So. Cal.

Harvests in mid summer - stores into mid-spring.

Leningrad is so beautiful it could only have been designed by a artist. It has thick white luxuriant bulb wrappers which peel away to reveal beautiful purple clove covers with elongated tips almost like a Purple Stripe garlic. Even with all its eye appeal, it is the taste of Leningrad that you remember. Its flavor starts off mild and becomes very strong and robust and sticks around for a long time. I seldom get this excited about a garlic I have found but Leningrad is truly something special. I call it a Russian time bomb.

Taste Test - Wow! What a garlic! I want more!

Leningrad is a real sleeper on both taste and pungency. At first bite it is a nice smooth mellow garlic that is pleasantly relaxing and friendly with no evidence of any unpleasant heat. After 15-20 seconds the flavor begins to become more garlicky and continues to slowly increase in garlickiness. About the same time one also begins to notice a gentle pungency begining to build and over the next 30-45 seconds continues to increase in hotness until a climax of garlickiness and pungency peaks at around a minute and then subsides slowly into a rich warm aftertaste that lingers and leaves one with mouth agape and breathless. After sitting in silence and my own sweat for a minute my reaction was Wow! What a garlic! I want more!

From a grower's perspective, it is a tall dark green plant and is a very good survivor, usually grows healthy and appears to be somewhat resistant to many of the diseases that can affect garlic. Obviously, this is a Russian garlic and it likes cold weather and can get quite large in good growing conditions.

Stull (hardneck Porcelain garlic)

Stull is a long storing Porcelain garlic with mild garlicky flavor and only a hint of pungency that grows well in most places.

Stull is a beautiful garlic that is unusual in that it is a very mild and mellow Porcelain and most Porcelains are strong. It is possible that my taste sample was an abberation from normal as growing conditions sometime cause a reversal of taste in all garlics but if what I tasted is normal then this is an excellent long storing Porcelain for those who love milder and mellower garlics and few Porcelains meet that criteria.

Stull was obtained from a NY farmers market and is very similar to German White in appearance, an excellent garlic, with whitish bulb wrappers and tight tan colored clove covers. Harvests in early-mid July - stores all winter long and maybe into spring.

Stull will probably be one of the taller garlics in your garden and grows well in most of the USA except the warmest winter areas of the country.

This Farmers market is like your local farmers market. Each grower handles their own financial transactions.

When using your credit/debit card to buy direct from different growers, a separate order is required for each grower. You may buy as many different kinds of garlic as you want from any grower on any order but each grower requires a separate credit card transaction so that S & H charges may be properly calculated. If you want to order garlic from more than one grower, a separate payment must be made to each grower because they are independant businesses in different places.

How Our Garlics are Grown

All the garlic for sale in our online farmers market was grown without the use of petrochemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers; only natural and non-toxic fertilizers and pest control methods are used.

Some of our growers are Certified Organic and some are Certified Naturally Grown, which we regard as equal to Certified Organic in every meaningful way but without all the bureaucratic entanglements. All our farmers market growers grow organically and some are Certified Organic but not all want to be certified Organic because of the paperwork and reporting requirements and are among the best available sources of sustainable/ organic Garlic and they become Certified Naturally Grown, where the regulation comes from their fellow members rather than a federal bureacracy.

We do not allow growers who use synthetic petroleum-based fertilizers, pesticides, fungicides or herbicides to participate in our farmers market.

All garlic in our farmers market is grown in North America, no others allowed.
This farmers market is strictly for small-scale North American market gardeners/growers who live and grow sustainably.

It is our desire to provide our customers with the best garlic we can produce and enhance our reputation for excellence - but we cannot be held responsible for what happens after the garlic leaves our care.
