Recommended Garlic Varieties

Hello Gardeners

I'm hoping to plant some stiff-necked garlic this fall and don't know what kind I should plant.

Does anyone know a variety that will grow well in southern Ontario? (or a similar climate)

Thanks

My niece lives in Ontario. She loves pickled garlic and buys it at the local farmers market. Last fall, I asked her to find out what kind it was, and she told me the farmer said he grows Music hardneck.

While I was researching it, way back in fall 2009, I found this great website devoted to [url=https://www.seeds.ca/library/articles/2004_03_Dyer_Garlic.htm]growing garlic in Ontario.[/url]

While trying to find this site again this morning, I found another great website,[url=https://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/crops/facts/09-011w.htm]this one less scientific and more readable.[/url]

Ontario appears to be a hotbed for growing garlic :lol:
