Romanian Red, like most porcelains is a large and beautiful garlic with rich robust flavor that is strong and has an aftertaste that lingers. The clove covers are a light brown streaked with purple.
Romanian Red has been tested and generates more allicin , by far, than any of the other ones tested. If you want a hot garlic , this one is it- and it stores into the following spring!.
From a grower's perspective, it is a large and healthy garlic to grow and appears to be relatively resistant to most of the diseases that can affect garlic. It was grown in Romania for centuries.
