Green Garlic is not a mysterious variant of the familiar Garlic we use every day.

Instead, Green Garlic refers to all of the new, green parts of the young Garlic plant. In the United States we are focused on the Garlic Bulb but many other cultures, particularly Asian cultures, use all of the Garlic Greens in cooking. 

The most familiar of the Garlic Greens are the young “Garlic Shoots,” more formerly called Garlic Scapes.
