Milder than ‘true’ garlic, elephant garlic produces satisfyingly large, plump cloves with a light, mild flavour. Easy to grow both as an annual or perennial, elephant garlic is a great addition to any garden or allotment.

Description

More closely related to leeks than actual ‘true’ garlic, elephant garlic produces huge bulbs, large blue-green leaves, and flower stalks up to 2m high. It can be used for culinary (perfect for roasting or baking!) or ornamental purposes. The bulbs can weigh up to 500g and reach up to 10cm in diameter. The cloves are often so large, that a single clove will suffice for a meal (and the peeling is easy!).
