Elephant Garlic (Mammoth Cloves)

  • Catalogue Code 1040-6046
  • Pack Contents: 1x Pack of 6x Extra Large Mammoth Cloves
  • Big bulbs that produce big cloves
  • Sweeter and milder than smaller garlic
  • Easy to grow

When planting your Elephant Garlic, make sure you choose a site that has well-drained soil and is in a sunny position. Make sure they are 15cm (6in) apart as they a little room to grow. They will also produce a lovely purple flowering head which ought to be cut when it emerges to get the best bulb for eating.

Not a true garlic, the Elephant Garlic cloves are more closely related to the leek. They produce big bulbs which in turn produces big cloves, making them a fun member of the allium family.

The flavour of the Elephant Garlic is milder and sweeter than that of the traditional garlic, which is good news for those who are not keen on a strong garlic flavour.  Try basting it with olive oil and then roasting it in the oven where it will give you a creamy-textured vegetable or eating it raw, grated into a salad.
