Anyone in Mid-Atlantic zone 6 growing softnecks?

I'm curious. I just looked at the Garlic Store website sampler packs and being new at planting garlic, I'd like to try a pack of the softneck and hardneck types. There are varieties for "Cold Winter" or "All Climate Zones" in both.

At the recommended varieties site put out by the Pennsylvania USDA (My farmette is in south central PA just over the Mason-Dixon line), they do not recommend softneck garlic, only hardneck.

Why? And is anyone successfully bucking that recommendation? Enquiring minds and all that...
