Rocamboles have a deeper, more full-bodied flavor than softnecks. Rocamboles produce large cloves which are wonderfully easy to peel and preferred by chefs and food processors. However, with these loose skins, you get a shorter life storage than most other varieties.
Clove colors range from tan to brown. This garlic also forms tight, beautiful loops on the scapes with up to 1-3 tight coils. Cloves are rounded with a blunt at the tip. Most strains can average 6-11 cloves. Storage is usually 4-6 months.
One pound of seed may produce up to 60 plants.
