Not really garlic, but it does a great impression! Elephant Garlic is actually a cold-hardy type of leek, though its fantastic size and mellow garlic flavour make it an excellent substitute for mild hardneck types. The large, 4 cm cloves peel easily and impart a wonderfully rich taste to your favourite recipes. Harvested in late summer, this is an excellent keeper, lasting up to a year in the pantry or a cupboard. Yield: 4-6 extra-large cloves per bulb.
Cloves: 1 per bulb.
