Deerfield (Rocambole) Seed Bulb


My absolute favourite when I want something sweet, rich and complex.  A wonderful all rounder that I use with every recipe and for any cooking style.  Gentle enough when raw, strong enough when cooked and heaven when roasted.  GOLD MEDAL RMFFA Winner.  Always gets the “oh” factor when tasted in the Garlic Shed Taste Tours.
