Even though this is called Italian Late, this softneck garlic variety is actually ready for harvest mid-season. Rich, pungent flavor makes this excellent for cooking and suitable for only the bravest to eat raw. Keeps well for 6-9 months and braids beautifully.
Garlic can be planted in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked, but fall planting is recommended. In areas that get a hard frost, plant garlic 6-8 weeks before the first frost, cover with a 3" layer of straw, grass clippings or other organic mulch.
