Thanks for your interest. Both Red Inchellium and Polish have long been grown in Maine (and not just by me). In general, Polish has fewer cloves than Red Inchellium and more color to the wrappers. Lorz I can only speak from my own experience and I rate in alongside the other two. Out of a trial of softnecks years ago, I disposed of all but Lorz. High fertility is a must for useful sizing of softnecks. I generally pull them 5 to 7 days before other types of garlic, as their necks and papers weaken if left as long. Their keeping ability is remarkable. Call me at 207-938-4113 if you have any questions etc.
