Green Garlic

Available: Out of Stock
$5.99

Green garlic (also called young garlic or spring garlic) is simply garlic that hasn’t fully matured. It's the natural result of farmers thinning their garlic stock, but an increase in popularity has turned green garlic into a crop in its own right. Green garlic is pulled from the ground before the clove and bulb skins dry out, so you might see green garlic at various stages of growth: with a barely discernible bulb (like a green onion), with a small bulb, but no clove separation (like a spring onion), or with a large bulb and cloves. Some garlic enthusiasts might tell you that the final form is true green garlic, and the earlier varieties are actually garlic scallions -- but we aren't linguistics sticklers. Either way is delicious.

Health benefits: Green garlic contains the same nutrients as full-grown garlic, such as allicin (a sulfur compound and natural antibiotic), manganese (a mineral linked to good cholesterol) and iron.
