A wonderful variety that is easy to grow and very dependable. As its name suggests, Big Boy is extremely vigorous and can produce huge bulbs. It is similar to Music, however, it sometimes has a slight purpled colouring when grown in certain soils. The flavour is sweet and consistent with the Porcelain family group.

Performs very well in cold climates and in a wide range of soil conditions. Produces a tall, impressive plant with dark green leaves. Scape removal is essential for maximum bulb size.

Bulbs are uniform with large cloves (average 4 to 5 cloves/bulb). Outer bulb wrappers tend to be purplish-white, with some rose colouring of the clove skins. Great presentation for growers selling or gardeners who want to display in their kitchen. Stores up to 6 months.

Garlic is a heavy feeder. For best results, apply a well-balanced organic fertilizer at planting and in spring. Planting green manure cover crops the season before growing garlic is also recommended. 

See our Garlic Growing Guide for detailed planting and growing instructions.
