French Red Garlic

French Red Garlic

French Red Garlic is the only softneck type of garlic that I am growing.  It is from the artichoke family.  If you recall there are two main softneck families.  Each bulb has up to 10 cloves and stores for as long as 8 months if properly cured.

The flavor is a hot one!  French Red Garlic works well with vegetables  and mashed potatoes.

I planted 12 cloves of French Red Garlic which I purchased from Enon Valley.

Overall, my garlic patch is very international this year.  Not only am I growing one variety from France, I am growing Spanish Roja from Spain, Italian Red and Music from Italy and Chesnok from the Republic of Georgia.
