    The hardneck “MaryJane” garlic (hardneck means it produces a scape) is a rare variety that I’ve slowly brought back into production. From 60 different varieties I’ve experimented with, this is the best. 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 in Pullman, Washington. I’ve grown this variety here for more than 10 years, “sizing it up” every year and multiplying my stock. Finally, here it is, ready for gardens and backyards everywhere.

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

    Plant garlic in early fall, allowing it to set roots before winter. Break bulbs apart into individual cloves, planting the root end down. Plant each clove in one to two inches of well-drained soil. Around May or June, the garlic should begin to produce a bulb; at this stage, don’t water, to avoid molding. When two of the leaves have turned brown you will know it is time to harvest the crop. Hang indoors out of direct sunlight in bundles of five. Store at room temperature in a dark, dry, cool place like a basement.

    We cannot ship any plants or fresh produce outside of the continental United States.
