The operative word for this garlic plant is "giant," as each bulb grows up to 4 inches wide and can produce around 10-14 cloves. The Kettle River Giant packs a lot of spicy flavor, tasting more like a hardneck variety rather than the softneck that it is. The bulbs should mature about 3-6 months after planting in the fall. Since the Kettle River Giant is native to the Pacific Northwest, it is very hardy in cold weather. This garlic will produce large bulbs even in areas that have the harshest winters.

This garlic variety is easy to grow and is resistant to both pests and deer. It thrives best in fertile, well-drained soil. The Kettle River Giant can be planted in the ground or a container. It is recommended that each bulb be place 6-9 inches apart with 1-2 inches of soil on top. As long as the earth is rich with nutrients, healthy bulbs should be ready to consume by spring or summer. This garlic plant grows best in Zones 3-8.
