Garlic (Latin: Allium Sativum) is a vegetable that derives from the family Amaryllidaceae. A garlic plant is long, has flat grasslike leaves, and flowers covered with a hood. The stalk rises directly from the flower bulb. The garlic itself is a bulb which is made of cloves covered in a papery skin. Moreover, it is highly nutritious and it is also very low in calories, making it an almost “superfood.”
Garlic requires cool air temperatures of about 10 degrees celsius during its first two months of growth. Once the roots have established and the roots begin to grow, garlic is not affected by hot weather as it matures. After being harvested, garlic is commonly sold as a bulb or a powder (spice.)
Garlic originates from Central Asia and northeastern Iran, but grows wild in Italy and southern France. Today, garlic is grown in countries all over the world including China, India, South Korea, and Egypt to name a few.
