Big but Biteless

Impressive size! Elephant looks like garlic and tastes like a mild hardneck type, but it is actually a type of leek. Plump, 1 1/2-in. cloves have delicious, mild garlic-like flavor; bulbs commonly weigh a pound or more. Very easy peeling and keeps very well. Averages 10 cloves per bulb.

Zones: 3 - 9 (-30° F.).
Height: 4 - 5 inches.
Shade Requirement: Full sun.

Elephant Garlic
Reviewed By: Jim (Bulls Gap, Tennessee)
We have several in the flower beds and a few will bloom mid June. Love it and eat it year round. Try slicing a few and put in a jar with your olives.
