Inchelium Red (Softneck) Garlic
1 full head
The history of Inchelium Red is still commonly unknown. What we do know is that this soft neck variety’s first known location to us was in Washington State. Originally found on the Colville Indian Reservation in Inchelium, this heirloom has been termed the oldest variety cultivated. The deep red striped wrapping is easy to peel from the smooth white flesh of the garlic cloves. In the best growing conditions, the heads can mature up to 20 mid-flavored cloves tightly packed together. As the stem dries out, its strength and malleability make it perfect for braiding to store. Braided garlic will last for up to nine months in a cool dark environment. Like most soft-neck garlic, the Inchelium Red can be grown in both the northern and southern climates producing a great harvest!
