These are a hard neck variety
Dug in compost and planted late October before first snow, but was cool. Had good top growth but the resulting bulbs are small as are the heads. Heads the size of walnuts. Last year i at least got heads the size of a golf ball. I was hoping that head and bulb size would improve, not degrade. I planted the best sized cloves from the batch too.
We had a cool wet spring well into June. Debating if I should even bother replanting from these bulbs or buy/be given some new bulbs for next year. Is the naturalization I got from one season worth preserving in this stock or should I go for something wtih better production.
My friend who gave me the cloves originally had smaller heads this year too, but more like mine were last year. I think my dad totally lost his garlic crop that I started him on last year. He didn't do much with them though and were probably too shaded.
I do like the flavor and sharpness of this unknown to me variety. Such as hassle to work through a bunch of small cloves to equal a normal clove though.
