Garlic (Allium sativum) is a species of bulbous flowering plant in the onion genus Allium. It is native to Central and Eastern Asia. It has been used since ancient times as a flavoring for food production and a traditional medicine for healing wounds and gangrene. It has been cultivated in Greece since ancient times. The planting of garlic for the Greek climate begins in Fall, in October or in Spring for damp garlic, until February for dry garlic. In Greece 30.000 decares are cultivated and the annual production reaches up until 18.000 tons with the main regions of production being Macedonia, Thrace and Platykampos of Larissa. The well known varieties of garlic are the white (of Thrace and Tripoli), the giant and the common ones.
