Most Italian garlics lean to the mild side, but Lorz is different. This variety rates an 8 on the pungency scale and can be very hot and strong under the right growing conditions. The aftertaste is sneaky; at first unnoticeable and then very present and bold. Lorz is classified as an artichoke garlic but it has more purple coloring in the wrappers than is usually seen in this group . . . pretty and easy to peel. Midseason harvests store well into winter. Bulbs typically have 7 to 8 cloves, with few, if any, small central ones. Sold as a trio of big bulbs, which is typically a generous 1/2 lb.
