Legend holds that pink garlic appeared in the Lautrec region of France in the Middle Ages. A pedlar stopped at an inn in Lautrec for a meal. Having no money, the merchant had to pay his bill in pretty pink garlic cloves. The innkeeper planted them, popularizing the pink garlic that then became highly developed in the region.
Between 1800 and 1900, pink garlic was grown in small market gardens and sold in bunches in the local markets.
After the Second World War, the production of Lautrec pink garlic developed. An association to protect the Lautrec pink garlic name was established in 1959 and the "Label Rouge" was granted in 1966 in official recognition of the product's superior quality.
