Softnecks - Plant in USDA Zones 5-10
Softneck varieties are the better choice for gardeners in warmer climates. They will produce larger bulbs and can be stored for many months.
"Sweet and mild. A great braiding garlic since it produces a combination of small, medium, and large bulbs at harvest. The largest bulbs will be produced from the large outer cloves. This is a great garlic to bake or roast. An early season softneck that has smooth white outer paper over purple tinted cloves.
Adapts well to summer heat and is known for long storage when properly cured.
Stores 9-12 months."

Storage instructions: Make sure to keep your garlic in a brown bag in a cool, dark, dry place until you are ready to plant it. 60-70 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal storage temperature. Air must be able to circulate freely around the bag. Do not store garlic in the refrigerator.
Sowing instructions: Garlic is best sown in the fall after the first light frost of the season. Bulbs should not be separated into cloves until just before planting. Sow with the point where the cloves attached to the bulb pointed down. We recommend mulching your garlic bed with a light layer of leaves to help with weed suppression and overwintering.
