Artichoke softneck variety. Discovered by Chet Stevenson in a feral garden in Tonasket, Washington, AKA “Chet’s Italian Purple”. Chet’s may be a close cousin to Oregon Blue and Early Italian Red. All of which were discovered in the Pacific Northwest. A high yielding variety for Oregon and Washington gardeners. Pleasant when eaten raw: the flavor is mild, with good character. In colder winter climates, the taste may generate more heat. 8-10 cloves per bulb. 65-75 cloves per pound. Early harvest. Stores 5-6 months. Recommended for Zones 3-10. Mild to medium.
Please note, all garlic seed orders placed now will be shipped in mid September. Thanks!
