Creoles

Considered by some to be a subset of Silverskins, they nevertheless tested out to be their own family- in the venerable Fort Collins study which shed so much light on garlic genetics (see http://www.garlicseedfoundation.info/jashsgarlic.pdf). Creoles are named such in reference to their origins in Spain, France, and in their New World holdings of Mexico, including the future American Southwest, and Louisiana. Meant for further south, they don't reach great sizes up north but are nevertheless reasonablely cold hardy, and have the most mind-blowing flavor of all garlics, with the most gentle of aftertastes. Up north, they've grown consistently hardneck.
