- A rich, unique Rocambole hardneck Garlic with a flair.
- Harvests early in summer - stores into mid-winter. A delicious Rocambole that stores longer than most Rockies.
Walden Redneck is a long time favorite of the folks up in Vermont and I can see why. It is a unique garlic that tastes similar to Rose de Lautrec, a marvelous Creole from the south of France but with more zip.
Walden Redneck is an early harvesting, richly flavored and fairly pungent garlic that grows well in cold winter areas. In addition to being early harvesting, it is very easy peeling and stores long enough to be planted in the fall and usually into winter. Grows consistently large bulbs with large cloves
Walden Redneck ranks 4 or 5 on the garlickiness scale but with a distinct horseradish-like secondary flavor. When eaten raw, it starts off 2 to 3 on the pungency side but after 15 seconds or so in the hotness increase noticeably to around 7 or 8, which eventually fades away to a warm afterglow.
Good flavorful Rocky that is excellent for raw eating. It has a very rich flavor with a healthy bite.
