Gourmet Red Russian Garlic Bulbs:
We can deliver to locations within Maple Ridge. If you live outside of Maple Ridge, we will have the garlic shipped to you, via Canada Post Regular Mail and payment method will be C.O.D. (cash on delivery). We currently do not accept credit card payments. At this time we do not deliver outside of Canada. If you are outside of BC, consider your carbon footprint, and try to buy local if you can. (Delivery will cost extra).
Garlic bulbs and cloves are live products, and your success in growing our garlic depends on many factors including the weather and the skills and practices of the grower (such as soil preparation, proper planting technique, irrigation, crop rotation and weed control). These factors are completely out of the control of East Ridge Farms and its Farmers and Owners and are the responsibility and risk of the grower.
Please note that the comments and advice contained in our literature and on-line are not a guarantee of performance of any garlic seed product. Any warranty / liability of East Ridge Farms and its Farmers & Owners is limited to the purchase price of the product. We do not assume the risk of non-performance, reduced performance, crop damage, or soil contamination arising from our garlic seed products.
If upon delivery of your garlic seed, you find it to be unsatisfactory, we will replace the garlic seed or credit you the price of the garlic, within 30 days of purchase.
If you do not agree with the above, please do not buy our seed.

Characteristics of Red Russian Garlic: Red Russian hardneck garlic has an average of 4-5 cloves per bulb. It is a cold hearty garlic that can put up with soggy BC winters as long as it is planted in raised beds. It produces a scape that emerges in mid June which can be eaten or allowed to grow to maturity into umbel/bulbils (bulbils can be eaten or planted). Our strain stores well and when harvested in July/August will store until December/January under proper conditions. Red Russian garlic should be planted in the fall. There are two types of Red Russian garlic: the rocambole type and the marbled purple stripe type... I believe ours is of the marbled purple stripe variety.
What does Red Russian Garlic Taste Like?: Red Russian garlic is a medium to hot garlic that sweetens when baked. It has a very "full bodied" flavor and it is sure to please the most discerning of garlic connoisseurs. It is a great all round garlic that is excellent when baked in the oven, used as a garlic for garlic bread, used in recipes, soups, stews, roasts and more! Your imagination is the limit.

How to Buy Our Garlic:
At East Ridge Farms we specialize in growing Gourmet Organic Garlic bulbs, umbels/bulbils and scapes. We grow our garlic using organic practices in permanent raised bed rows... no herbicides, pesticides or chemical/synthetic fertilizers are ever used. We amend our soil with things like compost, composted manure (from a local farm), bone meal, fish emulsion, blood meal and seaweed depending on what our plants require. Every aspect of growing our garlic, from cracking the bulbs to planting the cloves, weeding, harvesting, cleaning and curing the bulbs, is DONE BY HAND. Due to the way we grow and store our garlic, our garlic has a very long shelf life... it tastes like its fresh out of the ground well into December and even January! It has been said by a few of our customers that our garlic is the best they've ever tasted! Try some... you'll luv it!
