I bought Ozark from fellow growers at Bennington Garlic Festival, and they implored me to continue the variety as they were not sure how long they could continue it commercially. It is not winning size contests but in a cold winter that killed 40% of my softnecks, Ozark survived at 90% plus. All the "lilly-liver" has been bred out of it! Even as an Artichoke, it has a large number of weakly bolting plants each year- going partially hardneck. Very common for bulbils to form in the pseudostem, and for the plants to scape with bulbils up top as well. I plant all those various seed sources. If we’re all whacked with nuclear holocaust, there’ll be cockroaches scurrying around patches of Ozark garlic.
