Inchelium Red is a mid-season heirloom garlic with a mild flavor that's especially good for baking, roasting, or blending with mashed potatoes. A national taste-test winner in the softneck division, this large (2 inches or more), top-quality garlic is also prized for its long storage life -- 6 to 9 months. And its long stems make it perfect for braiding.

Inchelium Red was discovered on the Colville Indian Reservation in northern Washington and has quickly gained popularity. It's quite easy to grow, having very few problems with pests. Plant it in rich, well-drained soil -- garlic doesn't do well in dense soils with few nutrients. You should separate the cloves just prior to planting, placing them 4 to 6 inches apart and covering them with 1 to 2 inches of soil.

In the north, garlic is best planted in October, while southern regions should plant between November and January. Inchelium Red is a wonderful garlic that we're quite sure you'll want to plant year after year! 1/2 pound.
