Christopher Ranch’s California Garlic Blog

It’s no mystery that fresh garlic is one of the most popular, versatile ingredients ever. What remains relatively unknown, however, are the distinct flavor, quality and health differences associated with varying garlic varieties. Christopher Ranch, a family farm in Gilroy, Calif., grows a California heirloom garlic that is a leader in each category. All Garlic Is Not Created Equal. We’ll show you why.

Fresh California Garlic – A Summer Barbeque Necessity.


Memorial Day weekend is rapidly approaching, and with it comes the advent of summer – barbeques, swimming pools, beaches, festivities, and – of course – fresh, California-grown garlic.

Harvest of Christopher Ranch’s California heirloom garlic begins in early June, running through August, but our California garlic is available fresh year round.

Fresh California garlic is a must in menu planning for barbeques, as it’s great in dips – like guacamole and fresh salsa – in side dishes – like salads -and as a complement to any barbequed item – meat, chicken, seafood, pork, vegetables, etc.

And, don’t forget to top the meal off with a bowl of garlic ice-cream – it tastes much better than it sounds, I promise.

Listed below are some of our favorite barbeque dishes that boast a zesty, garlic flair.
