St. Helens Seed Garlic


Softneck Silverskin type

White bulbed softneck variety from western Washington State. It is a family heirloom named after Mount St. Helens and it grows very well for us, similar to other silverskins. St. Helens is later to dry down and stores well for many months. Clove size is consistently larger than other softneck silverskin types. Has tolerated rust pressure for us, enough to make nice big bulbs. Long stems make it a great choice for garlic braids. Flavor is hot when raw and mellows to a rich nutty flavor when roasted. Bulbs usually contain 7-10 cloves.

Minimum bulb size for our seed garlic is 2 inches across. Average 5-8 bulbs per pound.

Seed grown by Avram Drucker of Garlicana in Tiller, Oregon.

Separate cloves but do not peel. Plant each clove 2” deep, blunt end down, in mid-October. Space plants 6-8” apart in rows 1’ apart. Apply extra fertilizer in March.

Harvest bulbs in mid-July, when roughly 1⁄2 of the leaves are still green. Brush soil off of roots & hang in well-ventilated, shady spot to cure.

Select largest bulbs for seed to ensure large cloves the following year & eat the rest!
