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.
