California Early White softneck garlic offers a nice mild flavor and is the type you find in most grocery stores. It is great for cooking and very healthy! Another great virtue is that it stores very well. Since the necks of the stems are soft, they can be cut nice and long for braiding. A braid of garlic makes a winning kitchen gift for friends and family! Softnecks (Silverskin) are recognized by the white papery skin and an abundance of cloves, often forming several layers around the central core. Garlic grows from individual cloves broken off from a whole bulb. Each clove will multiply in the ground, forming a new bulb that consists of 5-10 cloves. When leaves turn brown in mid-summer, lift the garlic and hang to dry. Approximately 12 bulbs per pound. Hardiness zones 5-8.
Supplied as bulb.
