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.

Music Best Variety February 6, 2019
Reviewer: Veronica Ritchey from Tennessee  
I grew “Music” for the first time last year.
Beautiful scapes in the spring & nice Hardy bulbs with big cloves. Stores well - still using from last year’s harvest & it’s now Feb 2019
This one is a keeper & will forever be in my rotation!! 🌱

June 14, 2018
Reviewer: Mike Kane from Port Crane, NY United States  
I have been growing garlic for 40 years and have six varieties, all sourced from friends ( some who have died) that I have saved for that period. Music is the first new variety I have added in many years and it is performing very well. I began growing Music in 2014. My purchase in 2017 was to ensure I had good seed stock as I did not trust my saved stock from 2016 (long story). Your garlic is performing well, though I will not harvest for another month. Check back then.
Thanks for all you do. I really appreciate your efforts.
Mike
