German White Seed and Culinary Garlic, is a HARDNECK Garlic also know as Porcelain.
Hardneck varieties produce a flower stalk called a scape. The scapes can be harvested and eaten in a number of ways; they are delicious! The flowers eventually form bulbils that can be planted as seed but they will usually produce small round bulbs the first year that need to be replanted. Hardneck varieties include: Rocambole, Standard Purple Stripe, Glazed Purple Stripe, Marbled Purple Stripe, Porcelain, Asiatic, Turban Artichokes, and Creole subvarieties.
German White Garlic (porcelain hardneck variety) is one of the most widely grown garlic. It stores well, has large size easy to peel cloves.

Absolutely fabulous for garlic bread!

Porcelain garlics may be the most beautiful garlics of all and sometimes seem too beautiful to eat. Their bulb wrappers tend to be very thick, luxuriant and parchment-like and tightly cover their few, but large, cloves. The outer bulb wrappers are often very white to milky and light tan although some some, like Romanian Red, tend to some purple striping as you peel away the wrappers. Their appearance tempts one to wonder whether they were sculpted by some great artist rather than something grown in the ground. There are no smaller cloves as most cloves are large and fat this makes them a great favorite with chefs.
