Snow Mountain garlic (also known as Allium sativum L., Allium schoenoprasum, and Kashmiri garlic), is a subspecies of garlic which is found in the mountainous Indian administrated Jammu and Kashmir. It grows well in the western Himalayas at altitudes of up to 1,800 m (6,000 ft), in temperatures as low as −10 °C (14 °F), and with very little oxygen.[1] In Hindi, it is known as ek pothi lahsun.
