Chesnok Red Garlic
Chesnok Red is a true medium hardneck garlic that stores well and wins people over with both its fresh and roasted flavors. Another delicious treasure from the Republic of Georgia in the former Soviet Union, this is a standard Purple Stripe type with the heavy purple striped wrappers of its namesake. Very attractive, it can grow to be rather large in excellent soil. Cloves are easy to peel.
Averages 8 – 10 cloves in a circular pattern per head. Large heads can have up to a dozen cloves. Excellent keeper, lasting up to 8 – 9 months in cool, dark storage.
Chesnok Red is a robust and very hardy grower. Great producer in most states, doing well in even with warmer winters, but will produce larger heads and cloves in cooler winter areas.
Full flavored without being hot or aggressive, has a mellow aftertaste. One of the best, most dependable baking and roasting garlics. Actually tastes sweet after slow roasting!
