A Rocambole for those addicted to Porcelains and looking for a smooth transition! Carpathian tends to form 5 to 7 fairly uniform cloves, unlike much of the Rocambole family that goes for the 8 to 10 strategy. This feature makes Carpathian a versatile garlic in the kitchen and a favorite for growers. I’ve also found it to be longer-keeping than the other Rocamboles by a month or so, so you get to enjoy it that much more. One random bulb I had on top of my fridge was rock hard into next June, so who knows, with ideal conditions it's a real keeper beyond the usual Rocamboles. 5 to 7 cloves per bulb, as mentioned.
