***NOT TO TAS***  (Allium sativum)  Named after Roy Cody from Tamworth NSW who obtained the seed from his father-in-law around 1970 - possibly from a New Zealand Purple variety.  A variety which is quickly becoming established in the commercial sector due to its high quality and flavoursome bulbs.  Large bulb containing full, brownish pink cloves with rich, nutty flavour.  Well suited to a wide range of climates being more tolerant of cold and damp conditions than other varieties.

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
