Description Planting Instructions
 
Organic Music Garlic- A hardneck with classic garlic flavor and aroma, Music becomes sweet and nutty when cooked with just a touch heat. A ‘Porcelain’ type, each bulb is bright white with an average of 5 huge, easy to peel beige cloves. Originally from Italy, Al Music brought this variety to Canada in the 1980s; Music is now one of the most popular cultivars of garlic. Easy to grow, Music is so large it is often mistaken for Elephant Garlic.

Average 40 cloves per lb.

“Porcelain” varieties are hardnecks throwing scapes in June just before bulb harvest. Bulbs are typically large and bright white (inspiring the name ‘Porcelain”) although purple or copper streaking often appears depending on growing conditions. Bulbs average 4-6 exceptionally large cloves, each skin ranging from yellowish-tan to brown to reddish-purple in both background and streaking. Cloves are easy to peel. As a group, Porcelains are among the highest yields of allicin, the sulfur compound most associated with garlic’s therapeutic benefits. As a result, they are often more pungent and unsubtle and lack the flavor complexity and depth found in Purple Stripes. Nonetheless, they work well for any dish that calls for assertive garlic flavor. Also, Porcelains (more than any other hardneck) set larger bulbs when their scapes are removed.

The best! July 19, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Pennsylvania  
We bought one pound of this garlic 4 years ago and have re-planted it each year. Every year it has gotten bigger and grown stronger in flavor. We just dug ours yesterday and most of them were the size of the palm of my hand and had beautiful red/purple streaks.

Music Garlic June 9, 2017
Reviewer: thomas wollman from maine, NY United States  
First time growing this variety. Seems like the plants should be larger, but maybe it's gotta acclimate to may garden. Hoping to pull up some decent bulbs later this Summer.
