Note: Garlic is an agricultural crop that is subject to crop loss due to conditions beyond our control. This can even occur in the curing stage. We check each bulb before shipping them to you, so if there are any quality issues, we may need to substitute. We rarely need to do this, but it does happen. If it is necessary, we will substitute with a similar garlic, but if you have any comments on this please fill out the comment section like a back up garlic or no substitutions. We still want to get you some great garlic, so please choose how you would like us to proceed with your order if the item you ordered is not available. We do set aside some great garlic in case we do have to substitute garlic!

    This was a total winner for us this year. SE Michigan. We had a slightly dry and mild winter, normal spring, then six weeks of heat and drought, followed by six weeks of very frequent rain. Kind of weirdly, our Chesnok was not ‘done’ by beginning of August. It really wanted to go another week or two before harvest, but the bulbs were huge even so.

    2023 first season growing garlic — it’s almost April 1 and I still have Chesnok bulbs in unrefrigerated mesh bag storage in the basement harvested Aug 1, 2023. They are still plump and firm, while the few remaining bulbs of Wisconsin Korean harvested the same day are getting shrivelly and dry. It’s an exceptional storage garlic. I found it to be a bit more fiddly to cook with, as the cloves are smaller, skins thin, making peeling more work. All winter I kept reaching for the WI Korean to cook with because of convenience, which turned out to be a good idea since it didn’t last as long. But the Chesnok is worth getting a small amount, even if it’s not your favorite, just to keep back and still have nice firm garlic for cooking in April and May. I’m very impressed with its longevity, despite it not being quite as vigorous or convenient as the WI Korean.
