What is the absolute easiest edible plant you can grow? I spent my entire morning contemplating that question, and nothing came to mind that beats garlic. As everyone knows, it's a bulb, planted in the fall, grown through the winter, and harvested in very early summer. It requires no special care during the growing season, and has absolutely innumerable uses. Let's talk about this incredible plant.

Today I purchased bulbs of two varieties:
Red Russian and Siberian.

I am wondering if red garlic is better for you?

In onions it is the red onions which are most nutritious?
Yellow onions are less so and white even less nutritious.

Is it same for garlic?
