Garlic Gazebo Grande and Søren

I the picture I’m just about the tallest, but if I took off my sandals Gazebo Grande would no doubt be taller. This garlic is double height of most of my other garlics, only rivalled by Susan Delafield. I hope to find a big strong garlic at the bottom end of such a strong stem.

It is my first year growing Gazebo Grande, a porcelain garlic (expect the garlic to be porcelain white). It was the first garlic to get garlicrust, but still holding up strong leaves. Patrick of Bifucated Carrots shared it with me. He got it from a seed saver in Wisconsin. She had been growing it for ten years, selecting for the best. She got it from a local friend, who don’t remember wherefrom it originates.
