In a four-year field experiment (1992-1995) the plants of seven local
bolting ecotypes of winter garlic were assessed. The assessments covered
selected morphological and quality properties of the ecotypes. Cloves of
the garlic ecotypes under study were planted in mid-October at a spacing
of 10×10 cm, and depth of 5-6 cm. After the harvest in the second half
of July, the selected properties of the plants were assessed. Significant
differences were observed among all the plant properties characterized.
The highest total yield of bulbs was obtained by the plants of ecotype R
(34.3 t ha-1).
