Considered by some to be the hottest garlic in the world and on our farm at least consistently is way up there! See notes below on how to manage the ‘heat’ of a garlic clove.
Ships when harvested and cured for shipping, August-October.
These are ‘culinary’ bulbs, meaning that they may not be ideal for planting, as we reserve the biggest for re-planting. Even if not the largest, they will still be fairly sizable compared to store-bought garlic.

TIPS to make your garlic HOT
- Only the raw garlic is hot. If you cook it, it will be as mild as any other.
- Chop it up and wait at least 10 minutes. For every minute you wait, the hotter it will get.
- The finer you chop it, the greater the reaction between the air and the garlic flesh, and the hotter (and healthier) it will be.
- Don’t want it hot? Then cook it, or don’t chop it so fine, or use it within the first minute of being chopped!
- Pro-tip: minced garlic, after 30 minutes or so, is going to give you something close to peak heat.
Caveat: many factors go into making garlic hot; the variety, soil quality, the amount of rain at various stages of development, and so on. Flavor and heat can vary year to year.
