This is my typical garlic clove.At the garlic festivals I have not encountered better. This is hard neck and the name is not known. I select the best bulbs for seed each year, but also am growing bulbils now for seed. It has a strong biting, garlic flavor, meaning it is not pleasant to eat raw, since it burns somewhat.The clove skin is slightly colored purple near the base, but the clove is perfectly white after the skin is removed.The largest clove is 31 grams and the total bulb weight is 117 grams.

I haven't seen better.
Hardneck garlic is, in my opinion, far superior to soft-neck for flavour.
