Garlic has a long history as a food stuff and an even longer one as a natural medicine and tonic—not least in Sicily. First cultivated in central Asia 7,000 years ago, and extensively used in Ancient Egypt, garlic in Sicily is sown in winter and harvested in May and June. The Aglio Rosso di Nubia (Red Garlic of Nubia), grown in the Trapani province just west of Palermo, has EU-recognised Protected Geographical Status.
