Rosewood is a not a particularly large garlic but is a beautiful and well-formed porcelain garlic. Its flavor is very strong and robust and sticks around for a long time and can nearly be overpowering at times.
From a grower's perspective, it is a very good survivor and usually grows healthy and appears to be relatively resistant to most of the diseases that can affect garlic. It is one of those Porcelains that were formerly called Allium Longicuspis and still retains the ability to produce viable flowers, pollen and seed. If you want to experiment with developing garlic seed, this one's for you.
NOTE: None of the growers in our farmers market currently have this cultivar for sale.
