Chesnok Red is a striking purple stripe hardneck variety that yields large bulbs containing 8-10 long, easy to peel red cloves. This is a highly flavorful cooking and baking variety, and stores 6-7 months. It is aromatic and richly flavored, with a mild, creamy taste when roasted. Scapes can be harvested and used for cooking before the garlic itself is actually harvested. Originally from the Republic of Georgia. Performs well in any climate. Hardiness zones 3-8.
