Closer to leeks than to true garlic, Elephant Garlic is increasing in popularity due to its warm and mild garlic flavour and its ease of growing. Naturally found in the wilder parts of Western Europe and also in England, along the Cornish coast, it is highly ornamental too, producing tall, mauve coloured flowers during early to midsummer. Its mild, almost sweet flavour makes it perfect for eating raw in salads, or chopped and sprinkled over stews and casseroles and the flavour is wonderful if roasted whole and enjoyed as a special side vegetable.
This variety is perfect for autumn & spring planting- we have tried and tested them and know that they perform well. We choose only the finest quality bulbs, grown commercially in the UK by one of the world's leading garlic farms. You should always buy garlic from a reputable source and never plant shop bought, cooking garlic. All of our bulbs are certified as disease and virus free.
