SOFTNECK varieties are those most commonly found in supermarkets. The reason that you would see these varieties more frequently is that they have a much longer shelf lifethan the hard neck varieties, they are easier to grow and the beautiful garlic braids are made out of these varieties. You can recognize the soft neck varieties by the papery white skin and the abundance of cloves, often forming several layers around the central core.
