Susanville Garlic CO
Allium sativum sativum
Susanville comes from California where softneck garlic reigns king. An offshoot from a popular commercial variety. More uniform clove arrangement and development then most other artichoke varieties. Soft blush of purple colouring. Artichokes are typically large, store well and have a wide range of flavors. They are called artichokes because of the arrangement of the cloves in a bulb similar to an unopen artichoke flower.
When to Plant: 4 to 6 weeks before soil freezes. In warmer regions, planting ranges from late September/early October until the last week of November.
