The staple cultivar for BC growers everywhere. Evenly sized cloves and vigorous growing characteristics make this a favorite for farmers, and consumer recognition makes it an easy sell.

NOTE: This garlic has not been tested at the BC Ag Ministry Lab, and so it hasn't passed through all of our seed grade hoops, which is the only reason it's in the Culinary category. It looks absolutely fabulous, and we wouldn't hesitate to plant it ourselves.

There is also a Rocambole called Russian Red (note the word position swap) which we sometimes carry under the name of Uncle Ray's Rocambole Russian Red. These two cultivars have vastly different characteristics despite their similar name.
