German Extra Hardy Garlic
- 4-7 red cloves per head with ivory-white skin
- Vigorous and productive
A vigorous grower, this variety has long roots that enable it to overwinter without heaving out of the ground. Outside skin is ivory-white, but the clove skin is dark-red. This garlic has a strong raw flavor and a high sugar content, and is considered one of the very best varieties for roasting. As its name suggests, this Porcelain-type is a cold-hardy variety that is a dependable producer. Hardneck, 4-7 cloves per bulb.

First time growing hard neck garlic variety
Purchased Red Inchelium and German Extra Hardy and planted them Fall 2019, Zone 7b, heavy clay soil that was heavily mulched with wood chips. I’m pleased with my harvest - this was my first time growing a hard neck variety so getting to harvest scapes was a thrill! I’m saving and replanting cloves from the largest bulbs this coming November!
Great for very cold area.
I live in Minnesota and this is my favorite Garlic to grow. My area can drop to -35F and sometimes even colder. I first bought them from Seed Savers years ago.
