PRE-ORDER GARLIC BULBS WILL SHIP AFTER SEPTEMBER 1, 2017 (Softneck) A real winner; very large purple bulbs have a buttery flavor. This Native American variety was discovered in Washington. Soft-neck.

Plant individual garlic cloves in the fall, prior to the ground freezing, in well-prepared beds of soil that is rich in organic matter. Plant cloves 1 to 2 inches deep about 8 inches apart making sure that the tip of the clove is pointing up and the footprint of the root is down. In northern climates it may be necessary to cover with mulch prior to the hard freezes of winter and then uncover in spring. Provide adequate irrigation and weed control in order to achieve maximum bulb size. Harvest scapes when they have made one full curl and before becoming erect (can still be used erect however the texture is tougher). Garlic is ready for harvesting when the bulbs are completely filled out and plump. Watch for the bottom two leaves to brown and die back and for the rest of the plant to begin to yellow. Test dig a few bulbs to determine if crop is ready. Discontinue irrigation for about two weeks prior to harvest. Do not pull garlic up by the stalk but lift the garlic by digging with a fork or shovel. Harvested garlic should be spread out or hung away from direct sunlight for two to three weeks to cure (air conditioned location is okay). Make sure curing bulbs have adequate air circulation and are not piled atop of one another.

What are the pros? Clove size

What are the cons? Scapes late

Review:

This was my first year growing this garlic, and it's a favorite. Germination was near 100%, and with the mild winter, I was surprised I had greens showing all winter when the snow wasn't too deep. Most bulbs grew to a large size, and the few that didn't were by no means small. The scapes came late, not showing until after I had harvested from my other garlics. The scapes also ran small, surprisingly. I'll replant this fall.

What are the pros? Easy, delicious, nice braid

What are the cons? none

Review:

I bought a pound of the Inchelium Red, and planted it last October. There were slightly over a hundred cloves in that pound, with perfect or near perfect germination. I put a layer of straw on them after planting, and pulled it off in early April. I watered them three or four times in early June, no other maintenance. I harvested in early July. Clove size varied a lot, the smallest the size of a large marble, the largest about the size of a plum. I now have a 4 foot braid in the kitchen, and 2 1/2 lbs for next year. Several of the stalks produced bulbils, which I'm saving for planting as well. In the meantime, I've planted Baker Creek's Dragon Tongue beans (http://www.rareseeds.com/dragon-tongue-bush-bean/) in the bed to fix the nitrogen.

What are the pros? Grew well

What are the cons? A bit susceptible to mold

Review:

We grew this along with several other types of garlic in a bed we amended with well-aged manure. It did well, but not spectacularly, with medium sized bulbs. Tended to be susceptible to mold if there is a lot of spring rain.

What are the pros? lots off cloves to start with

What are the cons? fades in hot weather

Review:

Last year I had these and also a hard neck Germen garlic. This one had a very good flavor but I did like the German one so much more! I grow it again this last year and it seems to fade out faster than the Creole i got. I will do some research and make sure I get garlic for my area I guess.

Review:

This was the first time I grew garlic. This variety is amazing. One of them got as big as an onion. I planted it in October and harvested it in Mid-June! I bought 1/2 lb and got 44 garlic cloves to plant. Now for Fall 2017 I have 31 garlic bulbs that are usable as seed. Thank you Baker Creek for having this variety!
