Amazing flavor up front, but the heat is mild and doesn’t linger- an amazing feat for a garlic. It also is a great sauteer and all-purpose, superior flavored garlic. Even beats the Rocamboles.As a Creole, Ajo Rojo has stayed on the medium side for bulb size up north here, but the front-to-back complexity of the flavor makes up for that, and then some. This is one of my earliest to sell out, so I'm planting more and more to supply the demand! 7-8 cloves per bulb.
