Chesnok Red garlic is a purple-striped hardneck garlic with good exterior colour and nine to eleven cloves per bulb. The cloves peel easily and have good aroma and a nice, lingering flavour. Chesnok will store for four to six months through winter if cured correctly. This variety originated in the Shvelisi region, Republic of Georgia. Once garlic sprouts begin to show obvious signs of growth in the spring, scatter some Balanced Organic Fertilizer on the surface of the soil in between and around the plants. This will give them a good push for spring growth. Once the top two thirds of the plants have turned brown, gently pull the bulbs up without causing any damage to the outer skins. Lay the whole plants somewhere airy, out of direct sunlight for a few days before continuing with the garlic curing process.
