Garlic, Italian Loiacono is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Planted in Fall, Large Summer Harvest I started harvesting these about 3 weeks ago and have a nice crop continually getting ready for harvest. Planted about 100 cloves and it looks like 100% survival. Planted late summer to early fall and half were under a cold frame and half out in the open, cold frame crop was earlier harvest. Very good flavor, will plant again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not moldy I bought these and Transylvania last fall. Mine were not wet or moldy when received. I harvested mine a few weeks ago and they're now cured and braided for storage. I'm surprised at how small the bulbs and cloves are. Possibly my ground was more compacted than it should have been. The flavor is good.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rotted garlic seeds Don't know if it's Burpees way of handling or curing. All garlic bulbs received were moldy and wet internally. Waste of money. Will have to find another source.
