Silverskin Seed Garlic

SOFTNECK

Silverskin garlics are the type most often found on supermarket shelves due to their very long storage life.  They are a very high yielding softneck variety and do well in a wide range of climates, hot southern, wet maritime, and cold northern climates as well. Bulb wrappers are fine and smooth, usually all white. 12 to 20 cloves in a bulb.  

Silverskins have long been the most popular garlics for braiding because of their pliable necks and smooth, shiny skin.  These are the last garlic harvested and may lodge (fall over) a week or more before harvest due to their weak necks.

Approx 70 cloves per pound and stores approx 10-12 months
