Tasty Garlic

Postby Colin2016 » Sun Jul 26, 2020 8:46 am

Looking for garlic that tastes & smell like garlic.

Tried most of those that the suppliers are selling now but none of them stand out for taste or even smell.

Any suggestions?

Dear Colin,
I have just put in my order to Kings Seeds for mine. They had the best range for the best price I have found so far. They deliver from mid September which is better as it is about a fortnight earlier than the others. IMHO garlic should be planted in September if it is to do any good.
Regards Sally Wright.

Mersley Wight and Provence Wight (both softneck type) have been good for me, but I understand that some hardneck types like Caulk Wight and Czechmate (both hardneck) tend to have a stronger garlic taste .I prefer the softneck ones because they keep longer.
