Mild Garlic Flavor That's A Great Keeper

  • They call it Elephant because it gets so big! It looks, smells, and tastes like garlic but it's actually a member of the leek family. Cure for 30 days before using, or it will be bitter.
  • Raw flavor is like an intense green onion with a garlic taste, but we recommend using this cooked, not raw.
  • Delicious in chicken dishes, or as an onion or leek substitute in soups or stews.
  • A great keeper, storing up to a year.
  • Grows best where winters aren't too severe (sorry, Midwesterners). When raised in optimal conditions, this monster can be 4" across.
  • Packaged as a combination of bulbs and individual cloves by weight. Approximately 2 bulbs per lb., 5-6 cloves per bulb

Please note: Elephant garlic will look different than other varieties of garlic on arrival. The cloves may have separated from the bulb and the papery skins may be peeling. This is completely normal and will not affect viability.

Nice mild flavor

I roasted this with chicken and potatoes. It was kind of hard to tell the difference between this and the potatoes visually -- easy to tell the difference texture and taste-wise though. Giant cloves, easy to peel.

Delicious, fun to cook with

Since elephant garlic isn't actually garlic, it has a different texture/quality to it even if the taste is quite similar. It's a lot of fun to chop up and sauté with meet or veggies.
