Mary Jo sent me this wonderful overview of garlic cultivars. Racombole was the one that took over my Denver front yard due to the scapes bearing and dropping vast numbers of bulblets that each became a whole new bulb. I tried both the bulbs and bulblets from my Denver yard here several times but they failed quickly...a shame as the flavor and aroma was wonderfully pungent. It is a true hard neck that needs winter dormancy. The scapes twisted oddly as they grew, much resembling those old "crazy straws" for kids.
