(porcelain hardneck variety) The flavor is good, sweet and pungent, very hot when eaten raw. It is an Italian variety brought back to Canada by Al Music in the 1980s from his homeland. It has consistenly produced some very large bulbs for us and is super easy to grow; not fussy at all. When people see this one they often wonder if it's Elephant Garlic. Averages about 5 cloves per bulb.
