Photo this time around is of a freshly pulled Turban variety of Garlic – one of many types or varieties of garlic. Each variety has a distinct growing period and length between planting and harvesting. Some like Creoles will be in the ground for up to 9 months before they are ready while some others like Rocambole will be ready for harvest in only 5-6 months. Originating from the ‘Garlic Crescent’ in northern China and the Black Sea area the Garlic trading trail is believed to have preceded what we now call the Silk Road and garlic was an important trading item throughout the region along with many other foods that could be stored and moved long distances easily.
