Organic Chesnok Red

Sold out

Organic Chesnok Red (standard purple stripe hardneck variety) aka Shvelisi This is another one that has done consistently well for us. It’s said that this is one of the best cooking garlics. It is very flavorful, having won “best baking garlic” taste tests conducted by Rodale, Sunset Magazine, Martha Stewart and others. It holds its shape and retains flavor well when cooked. It has large easy to peel cloves. At our house we've observed a fantastic storage life with this hardneck, typically lasting well through April and into May. Originally from Shvelisi, Republic of Georgia. Averages anywhere from 8 to 14 cloves per bulb depending on the size of the bulb.
