Shvelisi (Chesnock Red) Hardneck . Shipping last week of August
Hardneck garlic in the Purple Stripe variety. HIGH ALLACIN CONTENT for health benefits. Use some raw in dishes, salads, dressings, hummus and relishes etc., for better health. Good roaster and sweetens in the oven. Hotter heat raw and holds more heat through cooking. Complex, full and intense. Wonderful in oil. 5-10 cloves per bulb, which is impressive for a Hardneck making it productive for gardeners. Beautiful and uniform, medium to large sized bulbs with subtle stripes which make for nice table decoration. From Shvelisi in the Republic of Georgia.
