Artichoke Softneck Variety

Red Toch – Artichoke softneck variety. Originated in the small village of Tochliavri, in the Republic of Georgia, and brought to the U.S. by John Swenson, AKA “Tochliavri”. Cultivated in a northern climate, Red Toch can handle cold northern winters. Red Toch is a favorite softneck variety of garlic experts Chester Aaron and Darrell Merrell. When stressed by hot weather close to harvest time, Artichokes may produce a hardneck (or scape) with several bulbils (seeds). This Artichoke softneck varietal is an excellent choice for braiding due to it’s gorgeous red and purple bulb skin color.
