Green garlic are immature garlic plants that are harvested before they begin to form mature bulbs or cloves. Green garlic range in height from 20-45 cms, producing thin, green stalks and small, cylindrical to globular white bulbs. The bulb size will vary depending upon variety and by how mature the garlic is allowed to get before harvesting.
