  5. Sra the garlic looks realy lovely. I read that 88% of the garlic that reaches the US Markets is from China, wonder how it is in India.

  10. Isn't it just lovely, Susan? I can't bring myself to use it up.
    Sunita, they're something called hill garlic, have noticed them only in the past few years. Not as pungent as the regular ones, though!
    Asha, don't think I'll use it at all - I will let it be.
    Bee, yes, wish I could hold on to it forever!
    Indo, this year garlic exports from India, third largest after China and S Korea, were almost nil, acc to some news report!
    Shn, you said it!
    Archana, not that i know of, it came with the rest.
    Mallugirl, am trying to read up on garlic, this was an exception from the rest of the pack.
    Coffee, yes, after I bought that, I bought some thin garlic and noticed some purple cloves in that too. Yes, this is the only comment of yours that came through.

  14. Paz, thanks.
    Thank you, Sia.
    Cynthia, I have seen purple in garlic before but never to this extent - and don't really know the difference. How do they differ?

  16. Hi Sra -- they look beautiful! I tried planting a few garlic cloves this spring -- would love if they grew like that! :)

  17. Fantastic pic Sra. Loved the colour of the Karam in the last post too. Not to mention your loot :)

  18. Suganya, LOL!
    Linda, do take pix if they do!
    Thank you, Sandeepa! My dad thought the kaaram should be redder and the Spouse said the garlic looked like a conference of mice!!! And now I can only see mice in that first photo.

  20. Susan, it was a rare find for me!
    Prema, nothing in particular. Just posted it because the colour was unusual.

  21. you made that garlic look so pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Purple garlic here, too! The cloves look so nice and fat, easy to peel! :)

    thanks for visiting my blog! your meme on the rubber formula made me laugh so much, and I'm in the office!

  23. Shilpa, thanks, glad my meme made you laugh. Actually, these fat cloves are not that pungent, which is good if you don't want much garlic - it's the thinner ones that are more flavoursome, like the ones in your picture. And right now, here we're getting a lot of purple-streaked ones!
