Garlic Scapes

THIS PRODUCT MUST BE PURCHASED DIRECTLY FROM OUR FARM. NO SHIPPING IS AVAILABLE ON THIS ITEM.

When it comes to harvest, garlic is a unique plant with not one but two reaping periods. Scapes are the tender stems and flower bud of hardneck garlic varieties, and these are harvested in the late spring to early summer. The garlic bulbs, on the other hand, are harvested during late summer. It’s critical to remove the scapes earlier in the season as this allows the plant to focus its energy on the production of a larger, more flavorful bulb. Once harvested, the unique blend of onion, scallion, and garlic flavor within scapes is an excellent addition to a variety of dishes, but they don’t typically feature the spicy flavor associated with garlic bulbs. Rather, you can expect more of a “garden green” taste. The texture of scapes can be compared to asparagus, and they make for an excellent source of protein, vitamin C, and calcium. They make for an excellent addition to meals for those suffering with heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and even cancer.
