Kashmiri garlic has a hard, golden-brown husk and looks like an individual clove of garlic. It has a rounded, bulbous shape with a stiff, flattened portion on one side coming to a point at the tail end of the clove. The small, single cloves measure 1.5 to 4 centimeters in diameter. The hardened outer layers form a protective husk for the bulb while it develops in sub-zero degree temperatures. The clove beneath is a bright white to creamy-white color and offers a strong, pungent garlic flavor without the acidity present in other varieties.
