Not everyone wants to buy a minimum of a pound of every kind of garlic they want to try so most growers have some special sampler assortment that contain two bulbs each of several kinds of garlic
Every kind of garlic is unique in taste, flavor, secondary flavor and aftertaste. In order to try as many as you can to find the one you like best, sampler assortments are the answer. You can choose between an all mild sampler or an all hot/strong sampler or all hardneck garlics or all warm winter garlic for the south and west parts of the country or a gourmet sampler that has a little of everything in it for adventurous minded people.
The sizes of bulbs used in the samplers are usually slightly smaller than prime in order to allow for as much variety as possible but still of good planting size. This is good for customers and growers alike. Sampler assortments usually cost a little more per pound because they are labor-intensive to select, package and send. It's worth it, though because it lets you try more kinds of garlic for less money than buying in bulk. If you order samplers from different growers, you will get different samplers, based on a grower's availability.
All Hardneck Garlics Sampler Assortment
Hardneck garlics contain a central stiff stalk called a scape that has a bulbil capsule at its topas the garlic matures.
A bulb or two bulb each of some stronger Tasting and hardneck garlics, such as: Music, Georgian Crystal, Killarney Red, Carpathian, Chesnok Red, German White, Romanian Red and Spanish Roja, etc. The hardnecks are strongly flavored garlics and are usually the best ones to use in cooking most "ethnic" dishes because they were originally made with strong, flavorful garlic. The hardneck varieties usually do well up north but are "iffy" at best in the deep south.
