Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
GARLIC ( Numbers 11:5 ). The familiar Allium sativum , still a very great favourite in Palestine, especially with the Jews. Originally a product of Central Asia, and once a delicacy of kings, it is only in the East that it retains its place in the affections of all classes.
