Elephant garlic scapes are long, smooth, solid green flowering stalks of the elephant garlic plant. Elephant garlic scapes can reach up to 2 meters at full maturity but is best harvested at around .5-1 meter when it is most tender. Each stalk is topped with a flowering head also known as the spathe. Depending upon maturity of the scape, the spathe can be thin and petite or bulbous and split open. Scapes release a pungent oil and robust peppery flavor when pressed. Its flavor is similar to that of green garlic but slightly milder with grassy and nutty undertones.
