Wet garlic is slightly larger than dried garlic and has a bulbous base that tapers into a thick, elongated stalk. The bulb ranges in color from crisp white to a blend of white and purple hues and is smooth with
light striations and striping. Within the bulb, the hard, papery membranes have not yet formed leaving a few large white cloves tightly clumped together, and the soft flesh is crisp, aqueous, and entirely edible.
The firm, pale green stalks are also edible and are crunchy and juicy with a fresh, green flavor reminiscent of spring onions. Wet garlic is smooth and mildly pungent, less spicy than dried garlic, and has a
sweet and nutty flavor.
