Organic Music Hardneck Garlic

Please Note: Garlic will begin shipping in mid to late September

Sow in fall to harvest the following June | Porcelain | Allium sativum

Gloriously aromatic, Music is spicy when raw yet balanced when cooked. She is easy to grow with 4 to 6 massive, easy-to-peel cloves per bulb and 5-7 bulbs per lb. Originally from Italy, Al Music brought this variety to Canada in the 1980s; Music is now one of the most popular cultivars of garlic.

“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. Also, garlic is one of the hungriest crops in your garden! We feed our soil as well as our garlic with our Organic Garlic & Shallot Fertilizer as well as our Fish & Kelp Emulsion.

Organic Music Garlic (Hardneck)

Choose well-drained soil that has plenty of sun and plenty of compost worked in. Between October 1st and October 30th, plant individual cloves 2-3 inches deep and 6 inches apart in a row. Rows should be 6-10 inches apart depending on bed spacing and cultivation tools. If you have mulch available it will aid in reducing frost-heaving. Keep garlic well-watered and well-weeded! Feel free to harvest the delicious, spiraling scape that will appear in early/mid-June on the hardneck varieties. Harvest your bulbs beginning the first or second week of July up until mid-August with a fork or shovel once a third of the leaves are brown and dry. Cure garlic (leaves and all) out of the direct sunlight for two weeks with plenty of good air flow, clipping the necks and roots to store long-term in a dark, dry place.
Softnecks: when harvesting we like to cut the stem of the plant as close to the garlic bulb to encourage uniform drying.
Worm castings: We have recently begun to use a small handful of worm castings on top of each clove when we seed in the fall. The health and size of the garlic plants has dramatically improved- give it a try!
Late planting? As long as you can get into the garden and the ground is not frozen the garlic will do just fine. We have planted digging through the snow when we got behind and had no other choice. You might not like being out there then, but the garlic does not seem to mind.

How to Save Your Own Garlic: Just a Taste!

For the most abundant harvests and grow the highest quality ‘seed’ garlic, sow the cloves of the largest, healthiest bulbs you can source. Organic bulbs thrive most in a wide diversity of conditions. When saving your own ‘seed,’ sow only the largest bulbs — indeed, the ones you want to eat most — and just be sure they’re not diseased in any way. May they surround you with abundance for many seasons to come!

    When you combine exceptional quality seed garlic with Petra’s informative and encouraging tutorial videos on how to grow it, there is simply no way you can be disappointed! This was my first harvest of garlic and it was a success! I mean of course, right? I followed all the instructions on the packaging and paired it with all that I learned in the Fruition Seeds YouTube channel and went ahead and grew garlic like a pro! The MASSIVE bulbs that came in the mail were indicative of what I would get this harvest and it did not disappoint. Thank you Petra and all at Fruition for your dedication! God bless you for what you are doing for us beginner gardeners!
