The scoop on Garlic Purple Glazer (hardneck)

Purple Glazer garlic is often the tallest garlic in a patch, slender and willowy in form. Under ideal conditions, this variety develops very large 2.5 to 3 inch heads. One of the prettiest garlics anywhere, Purple Glazer has white outer skins and inner skins that are almost pure purple, enveloping elongated cloves. The flavor of this variety is warm, rich and sweet; excellent for eating raw or for roasting and slathering on rustic breads.
