    Yes, I was wondering about the effect on the cloves, too. Might just let one flower right through, out of curiosity, but without hope or expectation!

    I am afraid so, not a hint of black seeds. I had hoped for something, because letting the scapes grow, whilst pretty in flower, does diminish the size of the cloves.

    Thanks. Bred out by selection then?

    From memory and from its leek connections, its ’seed’head looks very like a leek seedhead - but just empty husks from what you’ve found?

    Never seen any seed myself. To get seeds would be some achievement. I saved the scapes several years running to look for a single seed. Nope. Did not happen for me. Good luck.

    Elephant garlic scapes/seed

    I’m wondering how best to use my elephant garlic scapes - eat them as scapes or leave them on to see whether they produce seed. Some of each perhaps.

    Has anyone harvested elephant garlic seed and grown on from the seed? A slow business I imagine.
Working...
