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.
