  • 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 1.5 cloves per lb.

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.
