OUR GARLIC

We have a number of varieties

All of our garlic are hardneck varieties. Typically they have long storage capability, small numbers of but large cloves (which makes them easier to use for cooking) and, unlike soft neck varieties, are difficult to machine plant, because they need to be orientated properly when they go into the ground. Most garlic you see in the grocery store are soft neck varieties for this reason. China produces vast quantities of machine planted garlic which is why it is so cheap! And not that great.
