The first Silverskin I had the privilege to grow- these babies last 10-12 months in ideal storage. Did I also mention it gets huge with TLC and looks good while doing it? Great for someone looking to braid garlic. Coupled with its storage capabilities, it’s the gift that keeps on giving to hang a Lokalen braid in the kitchen for the snowstorms to come. I’ll add more Silverskins in the years to come but Lokalen is first in my mind for showing me that softnecks are not all that difficult
*please note- was given to me under the spelling Localyn, may be sold elsewhere under that spelling, but I've found out that it's originally transcribed Lokalen. I've read it's from "Macedonia"- not sure if it's the Republic of (North) Macedonia or the Greek region of the same name, or perhaps both.
