Taco is a rocambole type hardneck garlic, and these garlic often possess more intricate flavours, deeper flavours, that are sometimes sweet even while fresh. When cooked this garlic is complex, savory, and has a deep garlic taste. The after taste is lingering.
This variety is renowned as one of the best tasting in the world. Hardnecks must be planted with the clove's root side down, and like most garlic is very labour intensive.
Taco is great with slowly cooked meats, with mouth watering vegetables, and with mushrooms of the finest quality.
