Aglione Kissin’ Garlic (Elephant) Seed – 2022 – End of Season 24 small cloves
AU$14.75 incl. GST
This is my favourite Elephant Garlic from over 50 unregistered cultivars I have collected over eight years. In fact it is the ONLY one I’ve kept – because all else paled by comparison.
This has a true genuine garlic flavour of medium intensity with no pasty or green aftertaste. Can produce a very large bulb (over 750gm) – but best to keep it down to 200-300gm.
Keep out of sun to prevent “greening” of the clove tissue.
Grown right throughout Australia
