Brittany pink garlic is known as “ail à bâton”. This means that its stem is hard. It is known for its spicy taste. Pink garlic gets its name from the colour of its outer skin, which is the only one kept by the producers after cleaning the garlic bulbs. This outer skin allows the pinkish colour of the garlic to be seen through it.
Pink garlic has a very good shelf life. If stored in a cool and dry place, you can use it for several months without losing its taste or nutritional qualities.

Cultivating the Brittany pink garlic

Pink garlic is planted exclusively by hand in December and January. It is harvested by hand and in bulk. The producers then clean and pack the garlic cloves. Pink garlic is available in plaits, bags, baskets, bulk or in nets.
This variety is available from September to January.
