Color Codes for garlic sold in October

Inchelium Red - RED This is the long-storing white softneck that is sweet and delicious.
Chesnok Red- PINK, Shantung Purple- PURPLE, Dukanskij- BROWN, Shatili- BLACK, Tzan- YELLOW
Rose du Lautrec - TURQUOISE. This one is the very longest storing and tastes fabulous. It is originally from a farmer's market in France and is one of the loveliest garlics ever with small cloves that are gorgeous pink. Although it is hard to peel (part of being long-storing) it is a great garlic to have at this time of year. Check out the previous post on Rose du Lautrec from 9/2/10.
