Far as I'm concerned it's Shvelisi. Everything about it---from the size and number of the cloves to the flavor---conspires to make it the ideal roasting head.

I have read several places that chesnok red is a great baking garlic, haven't tried it myself yet but I hope to very soon, maybe next year.

Drew: Chesnook Red and Shvelisi are the same garlic, one of several that are marketed under two or more names.
