Garlic

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Garlic : (Heb. shum, from its strong odour), mentioned only once (Numbers 11:5). The garlic common in Eastern countries is the Allium sativum or Allium Ascalonicum, so called from its having been brought into Europe from Ascalon by the Crusaders. It is now known by the name of "shallot" or "eschalot."
