SOFTNECK vs. HARDNECK? (What is the difference?)
 
 
SOFTNECK (Allium sativum)
 
- soft & pliable neck (the stalk that grows up from a garlic) at maturity making them easy to braid
- strong flavour
- harder to peel than hardneck varieties
- stores well (due to several potective outer layers of papery skin)
- produces large & small cloves 
- well suited to warmer areas with hot summers & mild winters
 
 
HARDNECK (Allium sativum var. ophioscorodon)
 
- hard & stiff neck (the stalk that grows up from a garlic) at maturity forming scapes which may also be used in cooking
- mild taste
- easy to peel
- best used soon after harvest (due to only a few protective papery layers)
- mainly large cloves around the outside of the bulb 
- thrive & grow better in cooler areas
