Is Wild Garlic too Wild to Eat?
Hi there, We have lots of what I think is Wild Garlic growing in our yard. It is tall, thin, green and smells strongly of garlic. It also has a small papery bulb. I did some research online and I found that it is considered a weed in Oregon, but is it also edible? Thanks! Julia- Benton County, Oregon
Wild garlic is edible and it is not very good. It is garlic flavored, but it is tough and fibrous.
Watch out for it. It is a tough weed to control. Watch out that it does not spread.
