Chesnok Red Garlic


Regular price $2.95 Sale

Chesnok Red (Allium ophioscorodon) - Chesnok Red originated in the Shvelisi region, Republic of Georgia. This is a late emerging and last to harvest variety of purple-stripe hardneck garlic. Dark purple in exterior colour, yielding up to 11 cloves per bulb which peel easily and have a real nice aroma with lingering flavour. Chesnok Red will store for four to six months through winter if cured correctly. My personal favourite of all the garlic to cook with and eat raw. (Keeps the black flies away too).

Our garlic is grown under organic production principles from planting until harvest. All plants, cloves and bulbs are carefully inspected to ensure the highest of quality seed stock. 

Shipping your garlic: The garlic you ordered has been cured and inspected, packaged in paper to allow breathing room. When your garlic arrives we suggest you take it out of the paper bags and give it some room allowing more curing time before you store it for pre-planting in the fall. 

Storing your garlic before planting: Keep your bulbs out of direct sunlight, 10-15 degrees and below 60% Relative humidity with good air circulation. Avoid storing in a place with high temperature or humidity fluctuations. Storage mold may form on garlic that sits on a warm kitchen counter day after day, or a non insulated garage with high overnight humidity.
