@sharonhayden They are big Elephant garlic is very big each clove is between half and the size of a normal head of garlic. but they only have about 4 full gloves and 2 of them are only one clove. They all have small cloves around them that would have grown into full cloves had the conditions been better

@sharonhayden oh yes 😁 but milder in flavour than normal garlic. Really good to roast and smoke
