Garlic connoisseurs have been migrating garlic from their ‘center of origin’ beyond the natural range of wild garlic and more worldwide to bring the taste of garlic to their homes.
As this garlic grows in these regions, different environmental pressure brings out unique flavours of garlic. Further along, gardeners alike keep sharing and migrating this newly adapted garlic to even more diverse environments further instilling amazing flavours out of garlic’s own adaptation!
