Garlic for sale…?

Garlic selection

It’s never too early to make sure you have enough garlic to seed next year’s crop. Local garlic is kind of a cult item, people who want it get quite intense about stocking up, whether for winter or to finally take a shot at growing their own. And it’s somehow hard to resist selling your every last bulb… It’s not a money thing, because it costs me just about exactly what I make to buy back the same quantity, it’s that people seem so happy to have gotten some.

I’ve chatted with independent garlic growers small and large, and overselling your stock seems to be quite common. As a bonus to saving rather than buying every season, selecting the best bulbs as seed garlic from your own harvest may eventually result in an improved strain for your particular plot (the way garlic reproduces via vegetative cloning, I’m not sure what genetic science says about this as an improvement strategy, but it certainly can’t hurt!).

Every year, I go through this same bit of reasoning…and can’t resist loading up another bushel for market… This year, I had the urge to check my garlic suppliers earlier than ever before (at some point every year, they run out), and a couple of quick calls today gave me added incentive. Apparently, seed garlic is selling out fast, possibly because of an apparently growing public aversion to garlic from China (that’s where much of the cheap supermarket garlic comes from). Last year, I was able to get garlic in November. Now, my big wholesaler of certified organic Music thinks he might be sold out by next week! Time to start selecting…

  5. Helloooo Garlic lovers,
    After reading many blogs, questions and comments, I would like to add my penny’s worth……..
    SMALL, Little, Pink Egyptians are THE best …….
    In a potjie, stew, or with mince and (sheba) in pasta…. Man oh man.
    The important thing is NOT to peel them…. Just add them to the pot…
    The skin adds to the flavor…the fruit is tasty as heaven… If you’re gonna chew on the bone, Stew/Potjie you can chew on the skin and put it on a plate after sucking out the fruit….
    Seriously though..not many people know the little pinks… and go after the big giants……….that are not always as tasty.
    Ask a (smoker), (drinker), with no palate…lol. It’s great.
    Hope you all try….

      • Hi L strong, I am a distributor for an Indian garlic company and we have one of the best price in the market. (meaning you can resell)

        On top of that we deliver in large quantities too, meaning you can get yourself sorted for a while before repurchasing (miminum 28 tons).

        And you need not worry about delivery, it is almost negligible.?
