Absmeier High Altitude Garlic
garlic, garlic seeds

At 7551 feet above sea level, mild summers and winter temperatures that can get 30 below zero for days at a time, you might wonder how garlic can survive. We offer 7 varieties of hardneck garlic, both as seed (for planting your own garlic) and food (for cooking), which include Krasnodar White, Georgian Fire, German Extra Hardy, Armenian, Leah, Chesnok Red, and Purple Glazer. Once we've harvested the end of July and allowed the garlic to cure, it will be ready for sale the middle of September. The shelf life is quite long and we usually have garlic available until the end of March.
