Flavour and Uses
The mellow, raw flavor is great in uncooked dips and salsa. This garlic is hot, sweet and pungent. Very good for roasting Cloves are large and easy to peel.
Appearance and Size
Slender, regal leaves and a well curled scape. Scape removal is recommended to achieve good bulbing.White skinned with a blush of pink. On an averages 4-5 large cloves per bulb. While the outer wrappers are brilliant white (hence the name Porcelain) the clove skins often tend toward purple, though they can be white as well.
Harvest and Storage
Mid-season harvest. The wrappers are pretty sturdy on Porcelains and so the bulbs can stand waiting a bit longer before harvesting, maybe when 50 – 65% of the leaves are browning. Always dig down and inspect the bulbs to make sure they’re doing well and use your own judgement. Porcelains are a good storing garlic. Expect 8-9 months.
