Rakkyo Coming In

gardenlad(6b KY)June 27, 2006

Looks like I'll have a bumper crop of Rakkyo this year. Just dug one, as a test, and the bulbs already have formed nicely.

Anyway, after two years of bad rains at the wrong time, I have to rebuild my garlic collection. So I'm looking to set up a trade.

What I want in particular are Shvelisi (Chesnook Red), Music, and Xian. But I'm certainly open to other possibilities.

What I'm thinking is that three Rakkyo bulbs per garlic bulb would be about right. But that's open to negotiation, too.

Let me know what all y'all would like to trade.

I can give you seeds or sets of an heirloom english leek that we think is pretty good. The leaves have a purple sheen to them.

I have no idea what the formal name of this leek is, but it is only passed from gardner to gardner in the UK, as it is not permitted to be sold by seedstores over there. They have very funny rules about what kind of seeds can be sold. In the USA, just about anything can be sold.

It's been a while since I posted here, but I happen to have a good amount of Music. We had an extremely dry spring so they are not as large as last year, but they are a decent size.

Let me know.
