Chesnok Red is a cold-hardy, purple-striped hard neck variety originally from Shvelisi, Republic of Georgia. Known for its fine flavor and smooth texture when roasted, and has won “best baking garlic” taste tests conducted by Rodale, Sunset Magazine, Martha Stewart and others. Has been a consistent performer for us for over a decade. Grows best where winters are cold, spring is damp and cool, and summer is dry and warm. This variety produces a deliciously tender and mild garlic scape. Produces large bulbs with 8–12 medium-sized cloves per head.
