I am interested to learn what people mean by garlic seed. Only hardneck varieties produce bulbils, is that what you mean by seeds? Softneck varieties do not produce scapes so they would not have seeds. As far as I know growing garlic from bulbils takes about three years to produce a mature head of garlic. Good sources for garlic info are books by Ted Meredith and Ron Engeland.

I agree that all garlic is not the same but there are many varieties that have different names but are exactly the same. One example is Susan Delefield, Music and Northern Quebec. I have grown all three and could not find any difference amongst them. I am sure that this applies to many other vegetables and especially tomatoes.
