(hardneck variety - looks like a rocambole to us) An old Wisconsin heirloom variety, this variety is originally from Schumacher Farm near Waunakee, WI - an early 1900's homestead that is now a county park that actively teaches people about rural life in the 1920's and 30's as a living history museum complete with heirloom gardens. Nice big bulbs and cloves and good flavor. Biting into a raw clove reminds you of biting into a fresh juicy apple. First impressions are fresh, crisp, and slightly sweet, then a tiny bit of heat builds and quickly dissipates leaving a nice mild fresh garlic flavor in your mouth that doesn't linger longer than you want it to. Averages 8 to 11 cloves per bulb.
