ABSTRACT
Garlic, a perennial bulbous plant related to the onion. Garlic bulbs consist of a cluster of bulblets called cloves, covered with a thin, paperlike skin. The flat stems are about two feet (60 cm) high; the flowers are white. Garlic cloves are widely used in soups and other dishes in southern Europe; in the United States they are used chiefly as seasoning. Wild garlic, a pink-flowered weed sometimes eaten by cows, gives milk a bad flavor.
