By the way a couple of those cloves were cooked along with some shrimp in butter for dinner.  Shrimp tacos with avocado, black beans and spanish rice.  Good dinner.

L = Bulb or head--I use both words.

 

R = Clove.

L head, R clove. Though in Spanish I call a clove a "diente" which means "tooth" so although I've never heard that in English, I'd guess anyone saying "tooth" is referring to a clove rather than a head.
