Big, Bigger, Bigger yet, and the Biggest bulbs are not garlic bulk a leek. On average the Elephant Garlic which we bring in from California has 5 very large cloves per head. Definitely a milder taste profile than traditional garlic. Elephant garlic has been associated with roasting forever because of its size and flavour. Many of these bulbs grow 4 inches across in size. This Elephant Garlic averages around 2 heads per pound!
