‘Spanish Red’ is a spicy Creole variety of garlic whose fiery flavor can be tamed by roasting or sautéing. Genetically a weak-bolting softneck, ‘Spanish Red’ will behave like a hardneck in northern zones. The bulbs have pinkish white wrappers and about 8-12 well-formed cloves. Spanish Red does well in warmer climates and needs to be grown in full sun with very well-drained soil that is kept free of weeds. This variety stores longer than any other garlic we have ever grown, around 8-10 months when kept in a cool, dry place. ‘Spanish Red’ takes longer to mature and is usually harvested a full month later than other varieties, but it is well worth the wait.
Approximately 70-90 seeds per pound.
