This was my first time every growing garlic and I was very happy with the performance of this variety here in Northern NJ. After planting in mid October it came up quickly, survived the winter and began growing in earnest with the warmer weather. Many plant got quite large with 10-12 leaves. I ordered 1 pound of seed garlic and planted about 90% of that in my main growing area and the rest in a side area. That garlic I am letting flower and I removed the bulbils from in an attempt produce true seed. So, from about 14.4 oz of seed I harvested 9lb. 8.5 oz. That's almost an 11 fold increase, which was a lot better then I was expecting. That weight is after curing and removing the stems and roots. So, I was very happy with the yield and the average size of the bulbs I harvested were significantly larger then the seed bulbs I received last year. The only issue I had was I had some onion maggot damage on some of my bulbs. I will be replanting the biggest cloves this fall.
