Organic Elephant Garlic
Average 6 to 7 massive cloves per bulb | Allium cepa
Growing up in my father’s garden here in the Finger Lakes, I always thought our winters were too long and cold for elephant garlic to survive. Which is largely true! However, a Mennonite family in Lancaster, PA has been selecting a more cold-hardy strain and we were fortunate to receive a few bulbs from Adam Sauder. As we continue to make selections, we’re thrilled to share more cold-hardy elephant garlic with you!
More closely related to leeks than garlic, Organic Elephant Garlic is gloriously massive, each easy-to-peel clove imparting a rich yet delicate onion-garlic flavor. Their enormous cloves are arranged in a single ring around the central stalk which rises up at the same time as garlic scapes, though they stick straight up without curling and carry the same delectable onion-garlic flavor of the cloves. Also, garlic is one of the hungriest crops in your garden! We feed our soil as well as our garlic with our Organic Garlic & Shallot Fertilizer as well as our Fish & Kelp Emulsion.
