These white garlic are very hardy in our cold Canadian climate. They are a tall variety, reaching about 42 inches and when the scapes are left on, they can stretch up-to 7 feet high. They have very thick stems and are not suitable for braiding, but more for tying into bundles. They will store for nine months or more. Another positive feature is that the cloves are large and so less peeling is required. The best way to peel these is by smashing them on a cutting board with the flat of a knife. Most porcelains have a robust flavour and strong heat due to high levels of sulfur. For the commercial grower, these types are expensive to grow since they have 4 to 6 cloves per bulb.
