Vegetable - Organic Spring Garlic, Harvested on our Schools Farm
Green garlic (also called spring garlic) is one of the first seasonal items to pop up in farmer's markets come March or April and sticks around until June.
When green garlic first appears at the farmers market, you know that Spring has sprung. Picked before the bulb is fully mature, green garlic resembles a large scallion, with a small white base and a dark green stalk. The green garlic season is short (only a few weeks), so make sure you pick a bunch up when you see it, to enjoy the mild, slightly sweet baby garlic stalks.
