Inchelium Red Softneck Garlic
Inchelium Red is a softneck garlic that does well in the north! Softneck typically stores longer than hardneck- in fact- we used our 2022 grown garlic that was harvested in July right through June of 2023! We bought garlic ONCE from the store from all of 2022-2023. Yipee!
Fedco Bulbs (our original supplier years ago) has this to say about Inchelium Red: it "usually forms 2–3 inner cloves and 6–7 outer cloves, but can make a very large bulb with 4–5 rings. Inner cloves not as tiny as in supermarket garlics. White paper with reddish-purple markings. Very good flavor, but not intense; excellent raw. Decent keeper, with good yields and good bolt-resistance. Originates from Inchelium (in-CHEE-lee-um), Washington, near the Canadian border".
Available in large and medium sizes this year! The picture with a red background shows a large bulb- the cloves are huge!
