Favorite Garlic and Why Should it be My New Garlic

defigart(8B Vancouver, Washington)June 13, 2012

When fall comes and it is time to plant garlic I am sticking with my 3 standbys (listed below). I am also planting an organic "purple" that I got a local organic grocery. I have room for one more, and I am looking for suggestions.

My 3 standbys:

Chinese Pink

Chesnok Red

Incheliam Red.

I have grown these three for a few years now, and I originally picked them for there extreme differences in harvest times in my area. I am looking to expand my garlic palate. What are your suggestions, and why do you like it?

Thai garlic. I got it from a dealer at the farmer's market. It is red and beautiful and full bulbs were developed in April. This was at least 2 months earlier than my other garlics.

I have never heard of that type. Can you tell me more about it? What group is it in?
