Russian Red garlic is a variety of garlic that is prized for its strong, pungent flavor. It is typically used in cooked dishes, as the flavor can be too overwhelming to eat raw.
Red garlic gets its name from its deep red color, which is a result of the high concentration of anthocyanins in the skin.
In addition to its potent flavor, Russian Red garlic is also known for its large bulb size.
- Rocambole hardneck
- The raw flavor is intense and big up front, with some sweetness along with a slight and pleasant bitterness.
- Garlic expert Chester Aaron calls this raw garlic "the perfect garlic flavor".
- Heat is long lasting, like a hot pepper
- Averages about 6-8 large sized cloves per bulb

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that the seed garlic we sell will germinate, provided you follow the steps listed in our Garlic Planting & Growing Guide. This guarantee is only available to customers who purchase their seed garlic directly from us.
What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your garlic will remain alive & healthy, or sizes up properly, as there are too many variables beyond our control to be able to do so (i.e. soil preparation, fertilization, weed and pest control, temperature control, irrigation, etc).

If we determine that your garlic had a significant lack of germination, we will issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your garlic (excluding shipping).* This 45-day time frame is meant to allow you up to 2 weeks to plant your garlic, and up to 4 weeks to check for signs of growth.
(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items already replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence of the lack of germination of your garlic.
