Growing Calendar for Garlic Elephant (Jumbo Cloves)
The First Choice of Prize Winning Gardeners & Lovers of Real Food
Not a true garlic but actually closely related to the leek, Elephant Garlic produces big bulbs and big fat cloves.
The flavour is sweeter and milder than traditional garlic, making it perfect for those who are not so keen on the strong flavour of regular garlic.
Basted with olive oil and then roasted in the oven, Elephant Garlic cloves make an unusual and creamy-textured vegetable!
we grow these each year, they are brilliant cooked in pasta sauce.
Despite a picture in the catalogue, I was very impressed at the actual size of the cloves. Hopefully plenty of tasty garlic to come!
Great range and service; prices a bit high; my experience with plants rather than seeds is not good
