Short Description

Regarded as one of the best ever for cooking.

Full Description

A versatile garlic holds its origins in the Republic of Georgia, and is said to be one of the best for cooking and has in fact won several “Best for Baking” contests. Holds its shape and flavor well when cooked. This variety grows best where winters are cold, spring is damp and cool, and summer is dry and warm. Harvest fall-planted garlic the following season in late spring or early summer, about 240 days from planting. Harvest spring planted garlic the same season, about 90 days from planting. This variety produces a deliciously tender and mild garlic scape, and its cloves offer a robust and medium heat pungency. Averages 5 cloves per bulb. Hardneck variety.

Garlic, Chesnok Red is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This garlic grew awesome scapes! I like to try different varieties and this one grew wonderfully in my New England garden. I plant my garlic & shallots in a raised bed and cover all with 5-6" of straw to prevent winter heaving. We had SO MUCH snow last winter that it is amazing that anything survives and grows. This Chesnok Red garlic was a great multiplier; I got about 40 cloves from my 1/2 lb. Granted, this variety is small sized, but definitely numerous. I have made lots of tomato sauce with this to freeze and it is a lovely flavor, not too strong but definitely can taste. One plus in my observations; if you like garlic scapes, this variety made a lot of them...I had dozens, literally.....would grow again.
