The detection methods of $$gamma$$ ray irradiated garlic blub were studied using electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopy, photo stimulated luminescence (PSL) and thermo luminescence (TL). The radiation source was $$^{60}$$Co, the dose level was 50 to 180 Gy. The ESR spectra were consisted of one singlet signal at $$g$$ = 2.00. Upon irradiation, the intensity of the singlet signal was increased. The intensity of PSL signals from stem of irradiated garlic blub was increased as compared with that from non irradiated ones. In TL measurement the glow 1 curves of irradiated samples exhibited a maximum at temperature range of 180 to 220$$^{circ}$$C, whereas those of the non irradiated samples were observed at about 300$$^{circ}$$C. TL glow ratios calculated over the temperature range of 150 to 250$$^{circ}$$C were significantly smaller in non irradiated samples than in irradiated samples after one year storage. Thus irradiated garlic blub was identified by the shape of TL glow 1 curves and TL glow ratios. We concluded ESR, PSL and TL are suitable for detection method of irradiated garlic blub.
