Baba Franchuk’s is very much a Rocambole. Strong when raw, mellow when cooked. The taste is similar to German Red. Eat it raw, cooked or baked, it’s delicious.
Dark purple skins wrapped around the cloves make this a very attractive bulb.
The bulbs and cloves can get huge so you get all that great Rocambole flavour, especially when used fresh.
Each bulb contains from 6 to 10 cloves which are easy to peel.
Stores for up to 6 months.
We heard it originated in Manitoba and are glad it’s made the move to British Columbia.
