The Purple Garlic Capital


Spanish purple garlic / Amador Toril – ICEX

You would be hard-pressed to consume an entire meal in Spain without finding at least one dish on the menu that has been prepared with that oh-so-indispensable Spanish ingredient: garlic.

Yes, Spanish garlic is a fundamental building block of Spanish gastronomy, and it also plays a key role in this country’s agri-food industry, which exports nearly half of its annual 150,000 ton garlic production all over the world (and particularly to Europe).

One of the most treasured varieties of garlic in Spain is the purple garlic grown in Castile-La Mancha, and safeguarded under the Protected Geographic Indication Ajo Morado de las Pedroñeras.
