The difference between Vietnamese garlic and Chinese garlic

According to statistics on American imports, more than 80% of the garlic is sold globally by China. However, Vietnamese garlic has still maintained its stable place in the heart of the consumers.

When peeling:

* The garlic segments of the Chinese garlic open up slightly and are not completely bundled. Chinese garlic is less condensed than Ly Son or Dalat one.

* Ly Son and Dalat garlic have garlic segments that can be chopped off.

Chinese garlic regularly has a rather soft taste. Dalat and Ly Son garlic have a stronger taste. This is because of the Vietnamese soil and climate conditions.
