TYPES OF GARLIC

MUSICWhite skin with pink blush – medium heat. Often a favourite, well-recognized variety of garlic.

 

 

 

SIBERIANHigh in allicin (the compound responsible for garlic’s antibiotic effect). Medium to strong flavour. Light pink-coloured skin.

 

 

 

   GERMAN MENNONITEPorcelain variety – medium, robust flavour.

 

 

 

JUMBO YUGOSLAVIANThe 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.

 

 


HUNGARIANMedium heat with pleasant flavour.

 

 

 

 IRTUSKPurple-stripe garlic with a medium to strong heat. Flavourful and robust.

 

 

 

 NEWFOUNDLANDNot sure how this white porcelain got its name, but it has a medium, flavourful strength.

 

 

 

OFF THE BEE’TN PATHThis 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.
