I have grown this in the past, but your prices are very competitive. I love eating it roasted as a starter. not for vampires!

These are the best elephant garlics I've found and for the CHEAPEST prices, brilliant product.

These bulbs are perfect for baking and roasting as they maintain their shape well, or for anyone who wants to make a statement in their cooking. Delicious when baked and simply served warm, spread on bread or crackers.
Absolutely delightful, grown to perfection!

I planted this Elephant Garlic in November 2011 and harvested in August 2012. I have to say that I more or less let them get on with it themselves (after pre-digging and adding compost to the soil). Apart from I added a bit of compost on top now and then, and watered during rare dry periods. I did also pinch out the flower buds (and the long stalk) when they appeared earlier in the year as it is said that this maximises the bulb size. I planted 6 cloves, resulting in 6 plants, and of these 6 plants 5 produced good size bulbs (10cm diameter) and one only made it to 5cm diameter. All of the bulbs had divided into cloves, and also when removed from the bed had 2 or more 'nodules' on the outside which can be replanted within 24 hours. I left the harvested bulbs with top still attached to dry outside for 48 hrs, and they are now waiting to be eaten or have been eaten already. I was expecting a milder garlic taste, but they're still pretty garlicky, and too strong to be eaten in a salad as I had planned! Have yet to try them roasted. So far they're storing well. (Grown in south west England in a claggy clay soil - they seemed to quite like it!)
