Elephant Garlic is becoming increasingly popular due to its mild distinctive flavour. The cloves are much larger than normal garlic.

The best planting time for garlic is mid-June to August. Good drainage is essential to prevent bulbs from rotting. Apply Morton Smith-Dawe Bone Flour or Blood and Bone before planting. Break the garlic bulb into individual cloves; it is important you do this the same day of planting as the clove will dehydrate and may not produce as well.

Garlic competes poorly with weeds; try to keep as weed free as possible. Water moderately.

Excellent for roasting with meat; roasting and eating as a side dish; diced and eaten raw.

Name:
New Zealand Grown Elephant Garlic

Planting: Plant cloves 2-4cm deep and 10cm apart.

Harvest:
Approximately after 7 months. Once tips of the leaves begin to yellow and the base of the stem goes soft. This variety will produce seed heads.

Handling:
Handle with care as freshly dug garlic bulbs are easily damaged.
