GARLIC Varieties

This section was updated - 18 September 2014

There are many types, varieties and selections of garlic. Some of the most commonly grown include Spanish Roja, Yugoslavian and French. California Early and California Late are also grown, but markets seem to prefer pungent types compared to mild. Roadside and specialty markets prefer selections having pink, red or purple streaks in the skin. Supermarkets generally prefer white skin garlic. Elephant garlic is not a true garlic. It is more closely related to leeks.
