Applegate is a superb mild garlic that is excellent for raw eating as in pesto or added as something crunchy to tuna or chicken salad (it's that mild) or cooking where you want only the most delicate hint of garlic in your dish.
Applegate is an early harvesting fairly good storing garlic but should be grown in conjunction with a longer storing Porcelain or Silverwhite in order to be able to have good garlic year around.
Extremes of weather, such as extra cold or dry winters or high temperatures in the early spring can make it a warmer and stronger garlic. It is a wonderful garlic and I highly recommend it for those who love good tasting mild garlic. It is well worth growing and is a fairly early maturing garlic which you can be enjoying while most of the others are still in the ground.
Applegate is a good garlic to grow in warm winter areas.
NOTE: None of the growers in our farmers market currently have this cultivar for sale.
