California Early (soft neck, artichoke group) - This variety matures about 7 months after planting but only stores about 4-6 months. It produces a large, flat bulb with skin that is off-white or tan.

California Late (soft neck, artichoke group) - This variety matures about 8 months after planting in October. It produces a large bulb but not as flat as California Early. The skin is light pink to deep red or pinkish brown. Bulbs are firm with strong flavor and good storage life.

Silverskin group (soft neck) - This garlic matures late and stores well; it is good for braiding. It has a strong flavor. The bulb is large with a white skin.

Other types of garlic

Rocambole (hard neck) - produces pungent cloves and bulblets instead of flowers on top of a coiled scape or seed stock. It takes longer to produce a bulb if bulblets are planted. Pinch off bulblets if you want a fully developed bulb.

Creole (hard neck) - It is very early, often imported from Mexico but may be hard to find.

Pseudo garlic
Elephant garlic (Allium amprasum)- This plant is actually a leek with a mild garlic-like flavor. Bulbs often weigh over a pound and may have up to 6 cloves. Plant in fall and space cloves 6” apart.
