Chesnok Red wins our taste-buds for the most delicious garlic to cook with. It has a higher sugar content giving it the nickname "sweet baker" where the flavor is enhanced by cooking. It has an earthy rich and sweet garlic flavor when cooked without being overbearing. The clove sizes are just the right size for cooking.
A hardneck garlic from the purple stripe family, the origins are from the southern Republic of Georgia. This garlic has taller shaped cloves, typically 8-10 cloves per bulb, and lovely purple streaked wrappers that deepen or lessen in color depending on your soil type. Nice and tight skins make this a good storer, 6 months in proper conditions. A lovely addition to your garlic patch or kitchen. Grows very well in cooler climates and is an easy to grow garlic. Does very well for us in Vermont, especially in years where the winters are warmer.
Chesnok is similar to Vietnamese Red but we find it is sweeter and deeper in flavor.
