They call it Elephant because it gets so big! It looks, smells, and tastes like garlic but it is not a true garlic, 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.
Grows best where winters aren't too severe. When raised in optimal conditions, this monster bulb can be 4" across.
