500g Pack, commercial grade Elephant Garlic Cloves : (allium ampeloprasum).

Harvested green in June, it will be dry by mid July.

A fun member of the allium family, Elephant garlic can grow, with adequate water, to 150mm across and weigh over a kilo.

Roast it and impress your friends. It has a warm mild garlic flavour but is increasingly popular with those who like to make a statement in their cooking.

For best results plant September / October.

 

Notes:

Elephant garlic isn’t actually garlic. It is different, more closely related to the leek, and has a different growing requirements. To get those big cloves, you need to wait two years between planting the seed garlic and harvesting the plant. If you harvest after one year, you’ll get a solid bulb that hasn’t produced any cloves and is only marginally smaller than normal garlic.
