Description

Elephant garlic prefers a long, cool growing season and is best planted in early fall. The larger the planted clove, the larger the bulb it will produce and these cloves are huge. You'll harvest enormous bulbs that are up to 4" wide and 3" long! Delicious mild flavor.

Garlic can be planted in the spring as soon as the ground can be worked, but fall planting is recommended. In areas that get a hard frost, plant garlic 6-8 weeks before the first frost, cover with a 3" layer of straw, grass clippings or other organic mulch.

Really huge cloves, healthy, easy to separate. I cut a clove up to make sure it had the flavor that I was looking for in a good all around cooking garlic, and WOW did it pack a punch!!!! It was the best garlic I have ever had and I sincerely hope it all comes up in the spring. Thanks for sending me such a great product.

Not sure what I was ordering I guess. This seed garlic shipment was a few cloves from a gigantic ("elephant"-size??) what appears to be basically a grapefruit-sized garlic bulb. Its March and I stuck them in the ground for Fall harvest. This should be interesting... Cloves seemed healthy- two looked good, one was squishy/dried. I wouldn't recommend it just yet, because I have no idea what it's going to be like at harvest or when it's time to use it. I typically grow the more conventional types of garlic.
