That being said, there's nothing to stop you from eating some immature garlic if you have more than you're going to need for a year besides your seed stock for replanting.

Fresh uncured garlic is very juicy and not as strong tasting as a properly cured bulb. But it is totally good to eat all the same, if you won't miss the fully grown one.
Incidentally I am growing some Thermidrome from bulbils which Svalli sent to me. The plants are very vigorous and I think they will do well here too.
Yes Thermidrome. I have never grown any other Garlic but I am over the moon with this variety so far and if they taste good and store well I will grow them every year.
