New Zealand grown Elephant garlic is becoming increasingly popular due to its mild distinctive flavour.
Harvest at approximately 7 months.
Excellent for roasting with meat, diced, and eaten raw.
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 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.
