About spring garlic
Also known as green garlic, spring garlic is a farmer's market mainstay that signals the emergence of a chilly winter with its light garlicky taste that brightens everything from salads to soups.
Spring garlic is young, immature garlic that has a lighter, almost nutty taste and looks more similar to spring onions than to traditionally rotund garlic bulbs. Garlic is typically planted in the late fall and harvested in June or July. Once the ground thaws between March and May, the young green garlic can be harvested as spring garlic. Spring garlic tops are very bright green, and the bulb is white speckled with pink and purple. Spring garlic typically has not yet sprouted its cloves, strengthening its visual similarity to spring onions.
Chefs and culinary enthusiasts flock to spring onions for their lighter taste that is a departure from the bracing, pungent flavor of traditional garlic that can be overpowering in some dishes. Spring garlic is also very versatile and can be swapped for shallots, spring onions, and leeks in certain recipes.
