Creole garlics are considered a seperate species from silverskins (seperate and unique DNA)--highly suitable and adapted to the south--Harvests mid to late season--stores 7-8 months. Unique flavor; pungency 3-4 (on a scale of 10), a deep muskiness to the flavor like a hint of dijon mustard or horseradish. A unique and robust French Creole variety.
