    It’s true. There’s an heirloom variety of hardneck garlic (hardneck means it produces a scape) named after our very own MaryJane. It’s a rare variety that she slowly brought back into disease-free production over the course of 20 years. From 60 different varieties that she conducted field trials on, this one was in a standout league of its own—truly remarkable. It stores well into spring without sprouting, peels super easy, and each individual bulb is large and pleasant to work with when cooking. It was originally found in the outback of the Soviet Union by Rich Hannan, the director of the Western Region U.S. Department of Agriculture Germ Plasma Bank, located right next door to us in Pullman, Washington. There truly is no finer garlic than MaryJane.

    This is a Project F.A.R.M. (First-class American Rural Made) product.

    Plant garlic in early fall and water, allowing it to set roots before winter. Break bulbs apart into individual cloves, leaving its protective shell intact. Plant each clove in well-drained, worked, fertilized soil, root end down. Cover with two inches of soil. Once the lower leaves start to droop and dry, it’s ready to harvest. Hang indoors out of direct sunlight until fully cured. Store in a dark, dry, cool place like a basement.
