The bulb size, the skin color, the flavor, and the size and number of cloves are partly determined by genetics, and partly by cultural practices, soil and weather.
Our standard for a seed garlic bulb is a minimum 2" diameter. Every lot of garlic we ship has tested negative both for garlic bloat nematode and for white rot.
Artichoke Garlic, softneck type
