Porcelain Garlic Varieties

Porcelain Garlic: Key Growing Facts

Porcelain Garlic is a hardneck variety of garlic known for its robust flavor and large, easy-to-peel cloves. It thrives in cold climates and is best planted in the fall, about 4-6 weeks before the first hard frost. The soil should be well-drained and rich in organic matter, with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Plant the cloves 2-4 inches deep and 6-8 inches apart in rows, with the pointed end facing upwards.

Water moderately but avoid waterlogging the soil. Fertilize with a balanced 2-3-1 fertilizer at planting and again in the spring. Porcelain Garlic requires full sun and benefits from mulching to regulate soil temperature and moisture. Harvest when the lower leaves turn brown but the upper leaves are still green, typically in late spring to early summer. Cure the bulbs in a dry, well-ventilated area for 2-3 weeks before storing.
