Garlic is braided immediately after harvest, when the green foliage is still fresh. After this, the garlic strands are dried and will be ready for sale. Garlic strands consist of bulbs with up to 20 cloves. Garlic provides a lot of taste and is an important ingredient in the Asian and Mediterranean cuisine.
