Hi Trop -

I just bought some seed garlic from a popular seller, but not this variety. I read quite a few reviews from different seed sellers and blogs about different garlic varieties. Some were just reworded reviews from another post, and some described the experience of ONE growerwith no controls in one season with many variables.

I don't think it is worth the additional expense to get a particular variety no matter how attractive the seller describes it. Put the money towards getting more varieties of what you can at a decent price (maybe you'll be the writer extolling the virtues of what you grew) and try the variety that caught your attention next year when you can get it at a reasonable price.

My 2cents - Lisa

Edit: I wanted to add that purchasing garlic from a local source is said to have an advantage in that it has acclimated to the local soil and environmental conditions.
