This large garlic is excellent for roasting, cooking and is very healthy! Elephant garlic is not a true garlic, but actually a variant of the garden leek species. It has a tall, solid, flowering stalk, and broad, flat leaves (much like those of the leek), but forms a bulb consisting of very large cloves. Each bulb is approximately 5 to 6" across and can weigh over a pound. A single clove of elephant garlic can be as large as a whole bulb of ordinary garlic. The flavor is milder than garlic and much more palatable to some people. When cooking with elephant garlic, remember that it is not a substitute for ordinary garlic. Instead it is used where a subtle hint of garlic is wanted without overpowering the rest of the food. Elephant garlic is often served raw in salads or sliced and sautéed in butter (be careful, it browns very quickly and can turn bitter). Approximately 8 cloves per pound. Hardiness zones 5-8.

Supplied as #1 sized cloves.

Product will ship to you directly from our supplier via UPS beginning March 14, 2016. Sorry, we cannot ship to AK, HI, ID, MT, or PR. Please note that our supplier may delay shipments due to weather conditions. Fall shipments start in early September 2016.
