Chinese Garlic Planting Area

At present, garlic cultivation worldwide is mainly concentrated in China, India, Brazil, Spain, the United States, South Korea, and Japan.

China is the world’s largest garlic producer, consumer, and exporter. The annual garlic planting area in China is about 5 million mu, accounting for more than 85% of the world’s total supply. It is mainly concentrated in Shandong, Henan, Hebei, Jiangsu, and Yunnan, with a small planting in the three eastern provinces, Gansu, and Xinjiang. Besides, garlic is commonly planted in the provinces in suitable climate areas, but it is mainly used for self-retention or supply to surrounding market towns.

The main planting area of Chinese garlic

Hybrid garlic is the primary type of garlic in China, and its output accounts for more than 80% of the total. The main planting areas include Jinxiang County, Jining, Shandong, Qi County, Kaifeng, Henan, Zhongmu County, Zhengzhou, Henan, Quzhou, Xuzhou, Jiangsu, Laiwu, Shandong, and Daming Prefecture, Hebei.

Four or six cloves of garlic, so named because each head has four or six cloves of garlic, is highly spicy. In Shandong, where there is a strong garlic atmosphere, few people can eat more than two. The four or six cloves of garlic tincture have high yields and good appearance and are mainly used to supply the supermarkets in major cities and the Japanese and Korean markets. The main planting areas are Lanling County (Cangshan), Eastern Suburb of Handan (formerly Yongnian County in Hebei Province), Shanghe County, and Huimin County.

Hybrid garlic, the fruit of China-Soviet cooperation in the 1950s and 1960s, has about 20 petals on each head, is fresh and juicy, and has a good taste.

Yunnan single-headed garlic is produced on the Erhai Lake. One clove is one. It is mainly exported to Europe and has a high spiciness, beautiful appearance, and high value.

Northwest garlic, also known as purple-skinned garlic, is planted in Gansu, Xinjiang, and other regions.
