At Peace of Prairie Organic Farm, we know, and we grow great garlic.  You can enjoy its great flavor and excellent keeping properties, or plant your own from this certified organic seedstock.  Oklahoma can be a tough place to grow vegetables - all our garlic has been selected year to year for great bulb size and hardiness.

**All the garlic except for German White and Lorz is harvested and curing in the barn.  Maiskij has been hanging for 3 weeks, and is ready for shipment.  You can be eating crazy fresh garlic now!!  Yields have been good so we're glad to offer everything at the same price as the last couple years.

Garlic Sizing:   All sizes can be used for cooking, roasting and seed, but it is generally recognized that larger bulbs come from larger cloves of big-bulbed seed garlic.  Most recipes calling for a clove of garlic are expecting the smaller, culinary garlic of 1.5".  Medium 1.75" garlic can save you some money on seed, or give you slightly larger cloves for cooking.  Large 2" bulbs will yield the biggest heads when used as seed, and make a beautiful addition to any meal as roasted garlic!

 

Small 1.5"+  Culinary |  Medium 1.75"+ Culinary, Seed |  Large 2"+ Roasting, Seed

Varieties:

Music

  • Hardneck, Porcelain Type

  • Produces Scapes       

A farmers market favorite!  Music is a large, beautiful and well-formed porcelain garlic but with more color than most porcelains. Its flavor is very rich and musky, strong and robust and sticks around for a while. It is warm but not overly hot.  Great for roasting and cooking.

  • Large, well formed heads

  • Disease Resistant

Hardneck Sampler

All of the flavors and colors of our garlic brought together in a convenient sampler - so you don't have to buy a full pound of each!  Garlic will be labeled so you can know what you're enjoying or planting.  Medium, 1.75" size bulbs.

Samplers will include all varieties that we have in stock, plus "sold out" items that we may have just a few head left.

  • Try all of our robust garlic flavors

  • All produce scapes if planted

German White

Also known as German Extra Hardy, this garlic is a reliable producer, no matter what weather conditions are thrown at it.   We've had drought and flood, early summer heat and long cool springs, and it keeps giving!   Slightly milder than Music, but still a robust garlic flavor that lingers.

  • Hardneck, Porcelain Type

  • Produces Scapes       

  • Reliable in many climates

  • Stores very well

Maiskij

Pronounced "Mess - kij." With this variety we can extend our scape harvest over additional weeks - building up interest before the other varieties hit.  We generally harvest this variety in mid-late May in our Zone 4 Oklahoma climate.  Not for long-term storage, they like to be back in the ground after 3-4 months.  Smooth flavor that is not overly pungent or hot, and it looks so good! 

  • Hardneck, Turban Type

  • Produces Scapes  - Early!       

  • Very Early to mature

  • Colorful

Spanish Benitee

Spanish Benitee is an interesting Creole that has a nice garlickiness but with some pungency.  It is hot when tasted raw.  You can harvest this in the summer, and easily store it until the next spring.  If purchasing for seed, note that Creoles need lots of intense sun.  Northern growers may end up with smaller bulbs.  

  • Hardneck, Creole Type

  • Produces Scapes      

  • Smaller bulbs

  • Long Storage Life

Burgundy

Burgundy is richly flavorful with great garlic taste, and a more mellow pungency.  The beautiful red coloration is  almost too beautiful to eat, until you taste it! A few of these heads will make a beautiful addition to any fall centerpiece, and then you get to eat them!

  • Hardneck, Creole Type

  • Produces Scapes      

  • Beautiful coloration

  • Long Storage Life
