Spanish 'Rioja' garlic?
I bought some garlic for planting last week at the Hudson Valley Garlic Festival and one grower was selling Spanish "Rioja" garlic. I pointed out that I have always seen this variety spelled as Spanish "Roja", but he said he has seen it spelled both ways, and insisted it was the very same variety. Has anyone else ever seen it spelled as Rioja? Great wine, but I can't figure out why a professional grower who says he grows only this variety would not sell it under the well known name of Spanish Roja.
