The Alaska Garlic project

Growing the best Garlic we can has become our obsession, we know you will taste the difference. We were so delighted with our initial garlic
harvests we decided to go “all-in”. Our previous decades of experience with this awesome food/spice/health restorer informed our choice of varieties for our new far-north location and climate. We sell garlic as Alaska adapted seed for other growers, as decorative and edible braids
and for chefs and garlic connoisseurs who just can’t get enough of this flavorful bulb!”

We sell many different varieties of hard, and soft neck garlic for use as Seed for fellow farmers and gardeners, in decorative braids as gifts and for seasonal decoration, and as bulbs for chefs and aficionados alike.

Hardneck Varieties-(Allium sativum ssp. ophioscorodon)

Hardnecks (Allium sativum ssp. ophioscorodon) are closer to wild garlic, with complex flavors. These are the garlics that some compare to wines with subtle differences that reflect the regional soil and weather patterns. One simple benefit to the cook is the way some of their skins slip off smoothly. Hardnecks do not store as long as softnecks—cure them, eat them within 6-10 months, and get to know their distinctive flavors.

Softneck Varieties- (Allium sativum ssp. sativum)

This is the garlic you’ll find in most grocery stores. The bulb has a mild flavor. A great virtue of the softneck garlic (Allium sativum ssp. sativum) is that it stores very well. Since the necks are (literally) soft, you can cut them nice and long for braiding. A braid of garlic makes a winning kitchen gift for friends and family!
