Garlic Bavarian Purple 2 Bulbs per Order about 6 to 8 Heirloom Cloves per Bulb
A Rocambole variety. A strong, hard neck garlic that produces large dark purple skinned cloves. Good flavor with an upfront "bite" of heat that quickly disappears. An early harvesting, winter hardy variety, suited well for cold climates. Makes a very good root system. Has a long storage life. Harvest in about 240 days.
There are two types garlic--hardneck and softneck. Hardneck is best in Northern climates as it is more hardy than softneck garlic. But hardneck does not store as well as softneck garlic does. After harvest, hardneck varieties are shriveling up within four to six months. Softneck garlic grows better in the South. It also stores better, for up to one full year. We are in South Central Texas and we plant garlic bulbs each year that are hardneck. They do fine, especially with the crazy winters we have had for the past two years.

Companion planting is planting seed varieties near each other to benefit one or more of the plants. Some plants benefit each other by attracting beneficial insects, keeping away unwanted bugs. Others aid in pollination. Some plants have working relationships with each other and others have antagonistic (hostile) relationships.
