Yes, indeed. I tried some garlic about five years ago that had
impressive credentials and it seems to me I paid about five dollars
per pound. I did not feel the taste justified the price. Perhaps my
palate is dull.
Btw, I paid $4.27 per three-pound sleeve of this garlic in Phoenix.
Brought four of them here. Will put more in the ground as soon as I
get Magnolia operating and the stream crossing crossable.

I will indeed look for it.
