Chesnok Red - whole bulbs, 1/2 lb bag
This hardneck garlic produces large bulbs with purple striped wrappers. It is superb for cooking, holding its flavor and offering a distinctive, lingering taste for the garlic connoisseur. You get 5-10 easy to peel cloves per bulb. The variety may have originated in Georgia (the one in Asia) where it is known as Shevlisi. Grows nationwide and is tied with Spanish Roja for our best all-round variety, but it doesn't mind cold winters either.Certified organic garlic. US/C/W

This is the first time I have ever bought garlic cloves to plant online. I usually just get them locally. I got them along wih 'Music. These were nice solid, compact cloves. The heads were beautiful. The problem was that the cloves were not as large as I thought they would be. They had 2 rows with the outter row being the bigger cloves. The Music, on the other hand, had nice large cloves throughout. I planted all of them and I can't wait to see how they turn out. I will buy from this company again for sure.

I am planing it now. I will let you know how it is.
The cloves are on the smaller side.

I've purchased organic garlic for years from The Garlic Store. It's always been top quality. The customer service is wonderful. I plant and harvest my garlic for use in my organic salsas and everyday cooking. I dry it for my granulated garlic. Everyone loves my products, from my family to my customers. This year I purchased the mesh bags to keep my garlic after I bring it in from drying. Sure beats putting it in paper bags.

Order arrived in great shape. Immediately planted in the prepared bed. Now just waiting until they pop up and begin the growth.

Ordered the Chesnok Red (HN) and the Inchelium Red (SN) last summer and the cloves were big and healthy. The plants they produced were even better. Much healthier than my other 6 varieties that I currently grow. Unfortunately I cant comment on the tast as they are still drying but I am so impressed with these that I just ordered two more varieties.

I just finished planting this nice garlic. This is my second time planting this variety. I harvested my first planting in July. I don't remember where I ordered my first supply. It was fairly prolific, but I think I planted it too deep. I didn't plant as deep this year (2 inches). I love growing my own garlic, or anything for that matter.

I can't quite get over how beautiful the bulbs are!
Bought chesnok red and Tuscan.
Planted them right away. Had some beds ready for them. Tried a clove in soup and was very tasty.
Been planting bulbs bought from grocery and have not been satisfied with them.
Can't wait til next spring when they come up.

I ordered 4 different varieties and 3 of them were beautiful bulbs, however the chesnok red variety had a couple bulbs that were soft and
had a loose wrinkled skin. Would still order again from the Garlic Store next year.I would give the chesnok red a 3 and all others a 5
