 _______________________________________________________________________________________

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
