This garlic has all the colors of royalty! The attractive garlic bulbs are white with pinkish or violet streaks and accented with ivory and rose.
Growing Considerations: Red Rezan is an easy to grow garlic which seems to be more tolerant of soggy soil than some of our other varieties. The plant leaves are vigorous and upright. Smaller plants have surprisingly large bulbs for their size. This garlic multiples pretty rapidly since it contains more cloves per bulb.

Cloves:40-45 large cloves/lb. or 50-65 medium cloves/lb. Approximately 8-15 cloves per bulb. These numbers are approximate and will vary slightly. In general, Red Rezan has mostly medium-large, chunky cloves with a few smaller interior cloves to mix it up. Cloves are smaller and more variable in size than some of our other garlic varieties. We are working on increasing clove size.
