    Are those square shaped things the nuclei or something else?

      @Ronak: Those square shaped things in the Garlic peal are not the nuclei. They are supposed to be crystals of calcium oxalate. These calcium oxalate crystals are known as Raphides (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Raphide).

      It has been suggested that these crystals act as a defense against herbivores.
