Kettle River garlic AKA Kettle River Giant is a softneck type of garlic. It is classified as an artichoke variety. Artichoke varieties are the varieties of garlic that get blanketed under the common name garlic. They are known as the supermarket varieties of garlic as they are prolific in production, have longer than average shelf lives and can be shipped readily with ease.
Kettle River garlic produces large bulbs with an average of four cloves per bulb. The bulbs grow in pairs around the garlic's central scape, their size quite robust compared to many garlic varieties. When even slightly peeled the aromatics of the garlic permeate immediate and linger. The flavor of Kettle River garlic is rich, intense with an earthy garlic tendency and a smooth subtle finish.
Kettle River garlic is a rare heirloom cultivar that was recently rediscovered growing in the Pacific Northwest. Its specific points of origin are unknown, though all garlic cultivars are considered to be derived from ten specific varieties of garlic that evolved in the Caucasus Mountains between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. Garlic has been altered over time by natural and intentional selection, ever changing growing conditions, such as soil fertility, rainfall, temperature, altitude, length and severity of winter and as trade routes were evolved and extended garlic would become naturalized in often unnatural climates. Kettle River garlic thrives in a variety of climates, even tolerating cold winters which contributes to its adaptibility and longevity as a cultivar.
