Plant & perfume

Drôme white garlic comes from two Drôme varieties: the Messidrôme and Thermidrôme cultivars. It is a large caliber bulb, white in color that can have some purple tints. Planted in autumn, Drôme producers harvest it from mid-June.

Its taste is slightly sweet for a mild and pleasant flavor.

The cultivation of garlic in France was for centuries a peasant and food crop that was passed down from generation to generation. Its production was nevertheless known for a long time in the Drôme, there is a reference to it in 1600, in the book of Olivier de Serres. Agronomist to Henri IV, he studied subsistence agriculture in France to bring it to a scientific agriculture (Olivier de Serres "Le Théâtre d'Agriculture et Mesnage des Champs"< /span>). Mention is made of the presence of garlic on the Valencian market in 1793.

In the 1960s, garlic crops fell victim to several diseases, bringing French production to a halt. However, the Drôme is the only area in France that is not attacked by these diseases. INRA researchers then closely studied the varieties of white garlic used. They are selected and named: Messidrôme and Thermidrôme. In 1981, the white garlic producers of the Drôme decided to come together and form the Association of Garlic Producers of the Drôme. In 2008, "L'Ail de la Drôme" officially became a Protected Geographical Indication (IGP) and highlights the quality of the crops, the know-how of the producers and its production.
