Product Description
Huge bulbs often weigh over a pound! Elephant Garlic looks and tastes like a mild hardneck garlic variety, but is actually a leek. The super-large bulbs average 4-7 cloves each and have a very mild, garlic-like flavor. The cloves are easy to peel and can be used in recipes, just like you'd use garlic. Elephant Garlic stores well, too, so you can enjoy fresh garlic flavor in your recipes for months. Elephant Garlic can be planted in early spring or the fall. It's easy to grow—just plant it in full sun and in well-drained, loose soil, rich in organic matter. Sorry, cannot ship to ID or WA.
