Quick facts

  • Creole type
  • Small, and mild specialty garlic

Also known as Fisherman’s garlic, Pescadero is a small Creole garlic with a mild flavor and pungency. Stores very well. Brilliant red cloves.  Can be unsuited to far Northern climates as late spring frosts may cause damage to leaves.

How to grow it:

Plant individual cloves in fall, Sept-Oct, root side down, about 2 inches deep. Cover with straw mulch to help protect cloves from deep freezes. Harvest when leaves begin to dry down, around mid-July. Hang to let cure for 2-4 weeks in a covered location.
