Rocambole Garlic is a hardneck variety of garlic known for its rich, complex flavor and easy-to-peel cloves. It thrives in well-drained, loamy soil with a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0. Planting should ideally occur in the fall, about 4-6 weeks before the first hard frost, with cloves spaced 4-6 inches apart and 2 inches deep. Rocambole garlic requires full sun exposure and moderate watering, avoiding waterlogged conditions.
It is also sensitive to excessive nitrogen in the soil, which can lead to softer bulbs. A layer of mulch can help regulate soil temperature and moisture. Harvesting usually takes place in late spring to early summer when the lower leaves start to brown. After harvesting, it’s crucial to cure the bulbs in a well-ventilated area for 2-3 weeks before storage.
