    http://www.shee-eire.com/.../ Photos/Garlic-002.JPGGarlic is known universally as "the stinking rose", the term reportedly going back to Greek and Roman times. But why? The "stinking" part is obvious, but why "rose"? Garlic is an allium which is part of the Liliaceae family. Garlic is closer to a lily than a rose. So what is the origin of the name? Unfortunately there is no clear answer to this question. In their excellent book Garlic: Nature's Original Remedy Stephen Fulder and John Blackwood discuss the issue. The ancient Greek name for garlic was scorodon. According to Fulder and Blackwood, French physician Henri Leclerc derived this from skaion rodon which he translated as rose puante, or "stinking rose". This still doesn't explain why garlic should be considered a rose. One possibility is that if looked at from underneath a bulb of garlic does slightly resemble a white rose.

    大蒜擁有如玫瑰花般層次分明的花瓣,好吃卻有臭味,因此義大利人常用「發臭的玫瑰」(The Stinking Rose)來代稱大蒜。
