Red Toch, also known as Tochliavri, is an artichoke variety of garlic and botanically a member of Allium sativum var. sativum. Artichoke garlics are the most commonly seen varieties of garlic and are popular with both growers and consumers. They rarely bolt when growing and therefore devote more energy to producing full and flavorful bulbs, rather than reproducing. Like many artichoke cultivators the early harvest date of Red Toch garlic is part of its popularity as well. Red Toch is sought after by garlic enthusiasts for its ideal garlic flavor and is believed by many to be the perfect garlic in terms of flavor.
