Garlic chives, or nira, resemble long, green blades of grass and carry a faint aroma of garlic. They are a popular ingredient in Japanese and Chinese cuisine, adding a taste similar to fresh garlic without overpowering other flavors. Kochi is Japan’s largest producer of garlic chives, thanks to the warm, mild climate. Locally-developed permeable plastic packaging keeps the garlic chives in their just-picked state for longer, allowing for fresh delivery around the world.
