Italian Red Garlic

Italian Red Garlic

Compared to some of the other varieties I am growing, Italian Red garlic has a milder (or less spicy) flavor.  This variety will typically store up to 6 months.

Each Italian Red bulb has up to 9 large cloves.  You will see nice streaks of red and purple around the cloves.  Italian Red Garlic is a hardneck type in the purple stripe family  which originates from Italy.  Don’t get confused with the Early Italian Red which is different then this variety.

I planted 7 cloves of Italian Red which I purchased from Enon Valley Garlic.

If you missed my post on Chesnok Red garlic, just click on the link.  I have one more variety to talk about so stay tuned.
