The scoop on Garlic Inchelium Red (softneck)

Rodale Institute awarded this variety "Best Tasting Garlic" status in taste tests done on their Pennsylvania farm. The flavor is mild to moderate with classic well-rounded flavor. Classified as an artichoke variety, Inchelium Red keeps well, braids beautifully and stores up to 10 months. One of the easiest varieties to grow; if you live in a warmer part of the country, this is an excellent place to start your garlic growing experimentation. Cloves are often a bit oddly shaped; if you're a fan of individualism, this garlic could be for you.
