Northern White, very similar to German Extra-Hardy, German White, German Stiffneck and German Porcelain, is a large, beautiful and well-formed porcelain garlic. These may all be the same garlic but grown in different places under different names. Its flavor is very strong and robust and sticks around for a long time. From a grower's perspective, it is a tall dark green plant and is a very good survivor, usually grows healthy and appears to be somewhat resistant to many of the diseases that can affect garlic. It originally came from Germany but grows well in all but the most southerly states, where it is marginal.
