TYPES OF GARLIC
MUSIC – White skin with pink blush – medium heat. Often a favourite, well-recognized variety of garlic.
SIBERIAN – High in allicin (the compound responsible for garlic’s antibiotic effect). Medium to strong flavour. Light pink-coloured skin.
GERMAN MENNONITE – Porcelain variety – medium, robust flavour.
JUMBO YUGOSLAVIAN – The name may be a misnomer as its sizes vary from small to large. White skin with purple blush – medium heat.
FRENCH PINK – White skin with slight pinkish hue. It is a milder, calmer tasting garlic.
HUNGARIAN – Medium heat with pleasant flavour.
IRTUSK – Purple-stripe garlic with a medium to strong heat. Flavourful and robust.
NEWFOUNDLAND – Not sure how this white porcelain got its name, but it has a medium, flavourful strength.
OFF THE BEE’TN PATH – This variety is a result of poor record management last fall. Therefore, it has now fallen in the “D” category, which is any of the above.
NEW NEXT YEAR – Killarney Red – a purple stripe variety
