As part of the 2019 Fall Seed Academy Training here we planted out a half-pound of 21 different garlic varieties as part of an observational trial to learn more about the different garlic types. There were 9 garlic types represented.
Here are our results:
The yields varied from a high of 11 pounds per pound planted for the Turban type, Chinese Pink to a low of 2.5 pounds per pound planted for the beautiful (but sparse on cloves) Porcelain type, Music.
We hope to repeat this trial this year as part of the 2020 Fall Seed Academy (10/15-18): https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fall-seed-academy-tickets-116072761755
October is garlic planting month in most of the country except for the frigid north where it's advisable to plant in Spring.
