Then in June, once there are many sprouted leaves coming up, the garlic may be a foot tall by then, in the middle, a round sprout comes up (not a leaf), that is the scape. It is the stem that holds the flower of the garlic. A leaf will be flat while a scape will be a tube that is not hollow. I hope that helps.
Thanks Blissful, the "stalk" is solid. Reminds me of a mung bean. I think I will try one of the stir fry recipes I found.

Emeralds are real Gems! C. caninus & C. Batesii.

You got it. Sounds like the stalk is the scape. I hope your stir fry is enjoyable! How fun to find those in the market right now.
