Ten garlic ecotypes collected from the main cultivation area (Hamedan) of Iran were analyzed to evaluate their agronomical traits and Pyruvic acid content. The studied characters were: plant height, leaf number, bulb weight, bulb diameter, clove number per bulb, number of bulb layers, pyruvic acid, bulb color, bulb moisture, yield, soft neck or hard neck. . We found a significant difference on bulb weight, bulb diameter, number of cloves per bulb, pyruvic acid content and bulb color. Results of yield comparison introduced superior clones that were Barfjin (12.6 t ha-1), Heidare (12.4 t ha-1) and Ali Abad (12.1 t ha-1). Clones with more pyruvat and lowest color changes are suitable for introduction therefore based on result AliAbad, Barfjin , moein, Bahar, Heidare had more pyruvat and lowest color changes.
