Garlic Rossa di Sulmona is a wonderful red hardneck variety from the Abruzzo region of Italy. It is a favorite of Italian cooks because it has an assertive garlic flavor, yet is somewhat sweeter than other garlics. That means it holds its flavor in long-cooking dishes like marinara sauce, but it can also be eaten raw on bruschetta. Like all hardnecks, Rossa di Sulmona has large, easy-to-peel cloves arranged in a circle around the central stem. It is a very cold hardy variety (Abruzzo is a mountainous region) but the tradeoff is that it does not store as well as softnecks.
