Hadrut Seed Garlic (Organic)
Hardneck Porcelain type
Hadrut garlic is a classic porcelain type hardneck in most traits: It has a bright spicy raw flavor that mellows to become mild and earthy when roasted, with 5-8 large pungent cloves per bulb that are easy to peel and very juicy near harvest. As with most porcelain garlic varieties, Hadrut is very cold hardy and contains a high level of allicin, one of the components that give garlic its familiar flavor and also offers medicinal qualities. Good storage, lasting into the new year. Hadrut was the highest yielding garlic variety of our 2023 harvest, when an abnormal lack of rain in May caused most other varieties to struggle through the droughty conditions.
Introduced into commercial circulation as “Armenian” by California garlic farmer Chester Aaron, author of the memoir “Garlic is Life.” We sourced this variety from Garlicana Farm in Douglas County, Oregon, as Hadrut. We believe this is a much more useful convention, as it originated in the town of Hadrut in the autonomous republic Nagorno-Karabakh and has most certainly been grown by both Armenians and Azeris of the region. The area of Hadrut was occupied by the armed forces of the Republic of Azerbaijan during the 2020 Nagorno-Karabakh war.
Hadrut seed garlic minimum bulb size is 1.75 inches wide (most are over 2″). Average 7-8 bulbs per pound, 6 cloves per bulb.
