Arno is a very typical and classic old German garlic variety with many cloves (up to 16). The taste is rather mild and spicy. We plant it in the fall but it can also be in the ground in the spring. Fast-growing and late-ripening with beautiful grey-blue-green foliage impressed us with this variety. Softneck. Shelf life if stored well: until February. Available from the end of August to around December. Organic from our own cultivation.

For self-growers: autumn or spring planting, planting time: early November to mid-April, harvest time for dry goods: mid-July to late July, excellent storability, very beautiful, rather narrow dark green-bluish leaves. Only suitable for harvesting by hand because the leaves fall over when ripe.
Planting material requirement: 12 kg/100 m2

  • Garlic variety

    We were amazed to discover how many different types of garlic have emerged around the world. We would also like to grow a small selection here on the Hochberg. That's why we test new, interesting varieties every year.

  • Biological Diversity

    ...is available in our garlic field. We do not use weed killers, insecticides or artificial fertilizers. We regulate the weeds mechanically...and that's actually hard work. Especially if you have to weed by hand. But as a reward for this we have a wonderful diversity of species!

  • Ingredients and quality

    We only use organic ingredients, wherever possible from the region. We are also growers of Alb lentils ourselves. We get first-class cleaned lentils from the house next door as an ingredient for our lentil spreads. We purchase rapeseed oil from Biohof Bauschatz nearby. Most of our products bear the Bioland logo and are strictly inspected annually by ABCert. Hygiene and quality assurance is carried out by the BAV INSTITUT. We are also a member of Slow Food Germany.

  • packaging and shipping

    We work with an environmental printing company. The labels and leaflets are printed in an environmentally friendly way. The use of organic printing inks and organic varnishes based on renewable raw materials as well as suitable adhesives and additives also contribute to the conservation of resources. When shipping, we take great care to ensure that there is no waste, everything is made of paper.
