Garlic, common name for several strongly scented herbs of the lily family. A bulbous perennial plant, the plant's bulbs are used as a flavoring. A classic ingredient in many national cuisines, garlic has a powerful, onion like aroma and pungent taste. Garlic is used as a flavoring in cooking and pickling, sometimes in the form of whole or grated cloves and sometimes in the form of a cooked extract, as in sauces and dressings.

Garlic is native to central Asia but also grows wild in Italy and southern France. The membranous skin of the garlic bulb encloses up to 20 edible smaller bulbs called cloves. Flower stalks sometimes arise bearing tiny bulbs and blossoms without seeds. Garlic is propagated by planting cloves or top bulbs. Garlic is grown as an annual crop by methods similar to those used in growing it relative the onion.
