Found at the Flower show at Jijamata Udyan, Mumbai in Feb, 2011.
I'm told they are from Jammu and good for health.
Saw these for the first time.
Can anyone give the correct id.

Thanks Aarti ji for showing us yet another new plant.
What I learn from the internet is, this is a variety of garlic (Allium sativum) and is commonly known as "Snow Mountain Garlic", "Kashmiri Garlic", "ek kali ka jammu ka garlic/lasun" etc. Considered to be medicinal, espl in lowering bp.

Bought them once (in 2007) from Manali...they sold it as a medicine
for High Blood Pressure....unfortunately couldn't deliver it to the
concerned person on time and they stayed with me for almost 3 years
but even after that they didn't dry up...after removal of their hard
covering they were still juicy though the colour had changed to
brownish...from off white...

Yes a variety with large cloves. The plants are robust with broader leaves. In a plant there may be few or one clove; if one, it is completely rounded. The cloves from plants having more than one can only be used for propagation as seeds are usually not produced in it. However, despite of large sized cloves it has less aroma and pungency.
