Green garlic is the tender, young garlic that is harvested before the familiar bulb fully develops underground are called green garlic. Also known as spring garlic, it resembles a scallion, green onion or leek but yields an aromatic, delicate garlic flavour.  It has a strong garlic scent with a mild, fresh, herb-like flavour.  When harvested in mid-May a unique garlic flavour is present along with the highest nutritional and nutraceutical plant properties.

Use it in the place of garlic, green onions or scallions.  Great on a salad.  Most people cook with the white and pale green parts, but you can use the tougher green tops in broths or the like.
