Chesnok Red, a standard Purple Stripe; is yet another one of the garlics from the Republic of Georgia in the former USSR. A true medium hardneck garlic that is sweet when roasted.
They have fewer but larger cloves–around 8 to 10. Harvest early-mid summer. Although large bulbs will have about a dozen cloves and even the inner ones are of good size.
A full flavored garlic with a mellow after taste.
