Garlic Seed

We got some of what we thought was garlic seed from a friend of ours. After reading the article on garlic seed here, I am not so sure. These grew at the TOP of the garlic plant and are soft and fleshy like the cloves. They do not come close to resembling the small, hard, black seeds we are getting from our onions. What do we have and are they worth the effort to grow?

Those are bulbils and they can be planted just like the cloves and bulblets to grow new garlic but it will take 2 years before they will form a full head of garlic.
