Red Toch is another one of those delightful garlics originally from the Republic of Georgia in the former USSR. This tiny country seems to have developed more garlics than everyone else put together. Red Toch is a nicely flavored garlic, a bit on the mild side and with very little heat. It is not quite as mild as Applegate and not quite as strong as Inchelium Red. The inner bulb wrappers have a little rosy pink coloration and are of medium thickness and easy to peel.
Red Toch averages fairly large bulbs that are and it generally grows fairly clean under good conditions and has a few smaller inner cloves but no tiny ones. It, too, likes to finish off its growing season somewhat on the dry side, otherwise bulb wrappers can split.
On my dual scale it ranks a 6-7 for garlickiness and a 1-2 for pungency. Rich but very mellow.
