For much of the year, we are selling seed that is still in the ground. You can pre-order based on our conservative harvest estimates. If the actual harvest is less than our estimates, we can usually find a similar strain to substitute within the same varietal group, so please check YES to “May We Substitute?”. If you select NO we will send a refund for any sold-out strains. An expert always considers your location, similar traits in strain, and any other strains already on your order to avoid duplicates. You are also welcome to add any notes if you have specific requests for possible substitutions, or you can request that we contact you if substitutions are necessary.
The original seed for this productive and beautiful strain came to us in a 43 bulb braid with a box of Iowa sweet corn! From Des Moines Area grower Jordan Clasen, Grade A Gardens. Very vigorous growing seed producing large bulbs with pure white bulb-wrappers. Most bulbs have more cloves than our standard German White Stiffneck. Bulbs often contain 7 large fat cloves. This porcelain strain has been grown in Iowa for some time but appears to be the same variety as the German White (aka German Stiffneck or German Extra Hardy) that is a popular standard with Northeast growers.
