A hardneck purple stripe variety, Chesnok Red has both beauty and flavor. Best when roasted, the flavor has a sweetness without the bite of other garlic. This cold-hardy garlic yields 8-10 cloves. Stores 6 months when cured properly. 

1/4 POUND PER ORDER 

 

Planting: 

Separate cloves, plant 2-4 inches deep and 5-6 inches apart with the pointed end up, 3-4 weeks before the ground freezes.

Harvest: 

When lower 4-5 leaves have dried. Dry and hang out of direct light in a warm area with food air circulation. After they have dried for 2-3 weeks, cut off the stem, 1" from the bulb and trim roots.

Tips: 

Plant in well-drained, rich soil, amend with organic matter, such as compost. Mulch the garlic 4" with straw or chopped leaves, this helps protect from extreme winter conditions, keeps the soil evenly moist, and controls weeds for next season. Cut off scapes when they emerge (the curly seed stalk that will rise from the middle of the plant) so the plant can put its energy into producing the bulb, not the seed head. You can leave scapes on, producing smaller bulbs and the bulbets from the seed head can be planted for full-sized garlic in 2 years.
