Fresno claims title of California garlic capital

Fresno County is America's foremost garlic producer, with 77% of all the garlic in the U.S. grown in the region. Over the weekend, the Big Fresno Fairgrounds sought to cement the county's garlic credentials by playing host to the National Garlic Festival. The May 13-15 event featured garlic cooking demonstrations, garlic-inspired foods, midway games and more.

With a nearly $400 million value in 2020, according to the most recent crop year report, garlic is Fresno County's forth most valuable crop, ranking behind almonds, grapes and pistachios. It ranks seventh overall in commodities when poultry, milk and cattle are added to the list. The crop is grown on some 24,000 acres in the county.
