Rocambole Garlic Varieties

Rocambole Garlic - Spanish Roja
Rocambole garlic

 

Rocambole garlics are well known for their wonderful, robust, well-rounded, true-garlic flavour. They have loose skins which make them easy to peel. Bulbs can be large and characteristically have 8 to 12 cloves. Given the right conditions, particularly the right amount of water and enough heat, the varieties we are offering produce superb bulbs. All have reddish brown skins covering the individual cloves. The bulb wrappers often have red, pink or purple stripes when they are first harvested. If the scapes are left on to mature Rocamboles typically produce 10 to 20 good sized bulbils.

If you are interested in propagating from bulbils see our growing Rocamboles from bulbils page.

Note on Flavours
Please take our comments on flavour with a generous pinch of salt. The apparent strength and flavour of a strain of garlic is an individual perception. Different people under the same circumstances can have diametrically opposed views on the palatability and heat of a strain of garlic.
