Knowing when and how to harvest, how to cure and how to professionally finish your garlic is vital to its bulb health, storage and sale. The perfect SEED and SALE bulb has at least 3 complete bulb skins, a perfect stem and rock sold basal plate … and when harvested, cured and finished is an object of perfection.
But how do you know when a garlic plant is ready to harvest to give you the right finish, or how to harvest, dry and cure? What conditions do you need, how do you do it, how do you know when your garlic is cured and what is the best way to finish a bulb for seed or sale?
It does not matter if you’ve done our Intensive Training Courses or simply want to know how it is done. Each garlic group matures at different times through out the season, and each has its own maturity indicators to tell you when to harvest. Join us as we walk through the garlic crop and see the 10 different garlic groups and understand and see when each will be ready to harvest.
We’ll take a look at the curing shed and equipment, discuss and demonstrate the varyous stages of curing and how to know when it is cured. And then we’ll look at how to perfectly finish your garlic bulbs for sale and seed to both protect and promote your garlic for optimal sale and storage.
