Harvesting and Storage:
What are Garlic Scapes? Garlic scapes are long, thin loops that form on the top of the garlic stem on hardneck garlic varieties beginning in late May through early June. Scapes should be removed from the plant as they appear - cut or break them off - so the garlic's energy can be concentrated on growing larger bulbs. All of Alpha Garlic Farm's garlic are hardneck varieties, which makes the scapes a real bonus! They have a mellow garlic flavor that can be used in soups and stews or sautéed with other vegetables. Add them to salads, omelets, or roast them on the grill. The possibilities are endless!
