1/2 Pound Variety Pack Description:

  • Chesnok Red – Purple Stripe hardneck variety. The Purple Stripe horticultural group has been awarded the “best baked garlic” by Martha Stewart, Sunset Magazine and Rodale Press. 10 – 12 cloves per bulb. 50 – 60 cloves per pound. Late harvest. Stores 5 – 6 months. Small bulbs store the longest. [Hot] Recommended for Zones 1-9.
  • Silverskin softneck variety. Silverskins can grow in varied climates: from maritime, cool wet winters to arid, hot dry winters. They make terrific garlic braids with their broad tall leaves, and outstanding storage quality. In storage, they can handle more humidity than other softnecks, making them some of the longest storing garlic of all. If stored properly a spring planting is very productive. The bulb skins are white with hints of pink and the flavor is spicy. This is my new favorite garlic!! Last June 22nd, 2020 we had just eaten our last few cloves of Silver White.
