Spicy & hot

engk916(6/NJ)May 19, 2010

I dearly love garlic for its spicy, hot, flavor - what kind of varieties should I plant? Last year was my first garlic harvest of German extra hardy. While my bulbs grew nice and big without much effort,the garlic didn't seem to have as much flavor after I cooked it. My husband would like to add he prefers a garlic that will not stay with me for days if that's possible, but that is not a requirement. :)

Try some Rocambole types. This site gives good descriptions and carries about 100 varieties of garlic. Great people to work with as well.
