a rocambole hardneck variety popular among chefs and home growers. The bulbs are large and are quite resistant to Fusarium and Botrytis. Marino is a good keeper and seems to have done well in Northern soils. The flavor is great and it looks pretty with purple splotches. What more can we say?
Plant in Northern Minnesota around Oct 18th or approximately 6 weeks before the ground begins to freeze.
Rocamboles have an average of 6-10 cloves per bulb, somewhat flattened bulb shapes, and brownish to red-purple clove skins that are easy to peel.
