Elephant garlic is a large, mild-flavored cousin of regular garlic. It’s not actually a true garlic, but rather a type of leek. Elephant garlic bulbs are typically 2-3 times larger than regular garlic bulbs, and they have a milder, sweeter flavor.

Elephant garlic is a versatile ingredient that can be used in a variety of dishes. It’s great for roasting, grilling, or sautéing, and it’s also a delicious addition to soups, stews, and salads. Elephant garlic can also be eaten raw, but its flavor is milder when cooked.

Elephant garlic is planted in the autumn or spring, just like regular garlic. It prefers full sun and well-drained soil. Elephant garlic bulbs will be ready to harvest about 6-8 months after planting.
