- Rocambole type hardneck, large bulbils, very dark red/purple skinned cloves with faint stripes. Very large bulbs and cloves. Excellent garlic, well adapted for Pacific Northwest area.

Year grown: 2005, and every year since then
- From a local farmers' market in Greater Vancouver area, collected by Yee Chan, Vancouver. Probably a known variety (it is very similar to Chesnok Red), but the seller simply called it 'Russian'. Yee shared it with Tatiana Kouchnareva (B.C KO T) in 2004.
