Any way to tell what varieties these could be?
Last year when I was planning to plant garlic I just went to my local farmers market and bought some that had been grown locally. All I really cared about was getting something that would grow HERE and not something that had been imported from someplace warm. I'm in zone 5, southwestern Ontario.
I harvested my garlic last month and I seem to have two different types. The first has a wrapper that is purple and white, is difficult to peel and has lots of small to medium cloves. The second has outer wrappers that are all white, but the one right around the clove is almost chestnut color. Each head has 4-5 very large cloves and they are very easy to peel.
Any guesses as to what types they might be?
