Rocambole are the most widely known and grown garlic varieties. They have a deep, full bodied, rich taste. They are known for their true garlic taste. In the spring they send up a scape (stalk) that forms a complete double loop. (They’re the only garlic that do a double loop.) They have usually eight to to ten easy to peel cloves arranged in circular fashion about a central scape and have few or no smaller internal cloves.
They do not grow well in warmer climates. They require a cold winter and a cold spring. Their primary drawbacks are, they are fussy about growing conditions; they do not like wet conditions, they have loose skins which contribute to them being the shortest storing garlics, storing 5-6 months from harvest.
